Hello Equistrik.

Your poem describes life situation and a seemingly never-ending list of chores to be done but the celebration that you've given is the lick of a puppy.

It's truly amazing what something that tiny can do to a person's spirit. You go through the tough work in stressful situations, but at the very end, in the last sentence, the payoff arrives.

I have an 18-month-old puppy whose picture is on my profile page and I believe his tongue is as long as his tail. He is a licker. It can make a body happy.

Good luck in the contest.

Robert

A very well-written happy poem. It is very satisfying after a long day of serving our family and care that they all have what they need to get some attention too.

Great Poem! It unveils the inner feelings that are inside a person that, like you, assumed life as it came and looked for happiness as a main objective!
And your life has rewarded you with a four-legged friend that its only objectives in life are to play with you and lick your face!! Your poem shows (and smells of) happiness!

This is a happy thought entry for the Happy Poems writing prompt. I hope it does well in the contest. Happiness is a great gift to give away even to horses.

Below are my punctuation suggestions. I congratulate you on your determination and hard work!

As I drive away from the lumber yard
At this small moment in time,
I am "licked in the face by a puppy," happy.
Well, almost, it's hard to beat being licked by a puppy.

I, at fifty, a single mom of three,
And grandma raising one,
Through many hard times and struggles,
Finally have my own small place!

And by my strength and perseverance,
And as my daughter states, my stubborn will,
I have the ability to make it mine-a dream come true.

For three months now, and I have the blisters for proof,
I have wielded and swung a sledge hammer
Breaking a couple tons of concrete.
I have pulled and pounded nails, and now, today...

This lumber I will cut and put in place.
New stalls as the 100-year-old cow barn will be transformed
Into homes for my beloved horses:
Wings, Jazz, and Angel -- Hermes, Poseidon, Banjo, et al.

I'm not sure why you put et al. Does that mean more horses?

I am, indeed, 'Licked by a puppy' happy!

Great happy poem and story in verse! And good for you!

    just re-read. I think you should remove the period after place and put and new stalls will be built in the 100 year old cow barn.
    (Up to you, of course)
    It will be transformed
