Popular Vacation Poems
Beautiful Dawn
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Wet sand between my toes, in pink gold sunrise rays,
The day's unfolding in glory, as if to give Him praise!
The sand is warm and squishy, underneath bare feet,
As I walk to the cottage, awaiting Christmas treats.
A fine start to this vacation, and to this blessed day!

Braking New Ground
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a happy housewife and mother, and family was my world,
Like stars peeping at purple twilight, to see moonlight pearled.

My small children were in school, and my husband was a doctor,
As gold sunshine on rosy fields, causes vivid blooms to prosper.

Although we were a happy family, it was a hectic and active life,
As shooting stars race dark space, to explore the fresh nightlife!

My husband's work was demanding, greatly limiting family time,

Back From Vacation
by John Updike

'Back from vacation', the barber announces,
or the postman, or the girl at the drugstore, now tan.
They are amazed to find the workaday world
still in place, their absence having slipped no cogs,
their customers having hardly missed them, and
there being so sparse an audience to tell of the wonders,
the pyramids they have seen, the silken warm seas,
the nighttimes of marimbas, the purchases achieved
in foreign languages, the beggars, the flies,
the hotel luxury, the grandeur of marble cities.

See Sea Rider
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I had never before glimpsed the sea, and I had often felt the lack,
As rainbows sense the lack of luster, so they keep on coming back.

I dwelled in a pastoral area, quite far from any big body of water,
As the stars keep to their positions, in a strict adherence to order.

I had for long years been a librarian, for I had always loved books.
As admirers of sumptuous flowers, are giving them second looks!

Though my job was uniquely rewarding, it held no true adventure,

Vacate to the Vacation
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I may as well concede the obvious. I was an incorrigible workaholic,
Who was always so driven to succeed, that working replaced all frolic.

I was the co-owner of a business, along with my lifelong best friend.
Together we'd worked our way up, as the burnt sunset hues will blend.

While I was an overachiever, Ruby relished her appropriate downtime,
As the pearly full moon appears appropriately, just after dinnertime.

We had been impoverished in our youths, and had no yearning for more,

My Girlfriend and Me
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Why can’t we simply accept
the way things are...
Push aside all our worries
and enjoy a good cigar...

When you can take time off
to finally enjoy your life...
When you’re with your sweet girl
and not your ex-wife!
