by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a hopeful actress, but so far had only been offered bit parts,
And I fought to pay the bills, as a starlit owl, working after dark.

But because I had such huge dreams, I had been struggling for years,
Like a heart brimming with big emotions, is holding back the tears!

I knew I was an amazing actress, yet there were many others like me,
Making it quite hard to choose, like selecting cherries from a tree.

And there were times when I wondered, if I'd ever hit the big time,

Living Dolls
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a successful, fancy dollmaker, but that had not always been the case,
Such as a case for blossoming romance, when spring is budding everyplace.

For in my inexperienced youth, I had seldom given any undertaking my all,
For we must live our lives to the fullest, to make sweet memories to recall.

I wasted precious time, just getting by, with my major focus on having fun,
Like the fun, daisy days of youthful summer, when nature frolics in the sun.

But, I finally came to my jaded senses, realizing that I had a sweet dream.

Flying High
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a professional kite flyer, and had won big contests and tournaments,
As the one who has glimpsed a dream, and hasn't ever looked back since.

I began flying kites as a girl, running in summery fields with my brother,
When kites held such a colorful attraction, and exhilaration like no other!

Since then, I had never found another vocation, I loved nearly as much,
Like a starlit moon in pure midnight, glimmers steadily on lakes and such.

I had a collection of treasured kites, that were my pride and me gave joy,

A Basket Case
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a private detective, and I was deemed one of the best,
As the colorful tulip fields, are forever attracting guests.

My skills seemed often in demand, and indeed kept me moving,
As gold days seem to go red, from our sun's endless cruising!

I loved my work a great deal, for I had an inquisitive mind,
As birdwatchers revel in vivid days, admiring each new find.

I was often quite busy, but rarely took extensive time off,

Starlight
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I had lately been in the career doldrums, for I was an aspiring, eager actress,
Like lavish summer blossoming rampantly, in wild, passionate distractedness.

I'd enjoyed a few triumphant successes, still, they were few and far between,
Like violet nights of shooting stars, as you wonder where that magic's been!

I guess it may seem I was being unwise, but I was chasing a precious dream,
Like blooms, failing to soak up the sun, soak up precious, ivory moonbeams.

It's not that I was innately morose, indeed, I had a sunny, happy disposition,
