O Happy Day!

Such pretty silver earrings I had on that day.
We had taken a trip that was far away.                                      
Later that evening I felt my right ear.
Sadly one of the earrings had disappeared.
I looked high and low for the earring’s mate.
I soon gave up since it was getting late.
We started back home the very next day.
Losing that earring bugged me all the way.
A few days later my husband had a surprise.
He was cleaning out the car when something caught his eye.
The other silver earring he did find.
It was in the car this whole time.
I was very happy, this is true.
I have my earring back and a poem too.

Question: What have you lost and then found again?


  1. Once I had lost some money. The bills had fluttered--unknown--out of my car. Later I discovered they were gone, and figured they would stay that way. But luckily it had rained and then gotten suddenly cold, and the bills were frozen, with ice imprisoning them right by my car, which was parked on the street in front of my house. When I found them the next morning, I considered myself quite fortunate.

  2. I am forever losing then finding things. Yesterday I found my glasses case which I thought I had lost three months ago. It was shoved between my seat and the console in my car. I love when that happens, don't you?

  3. Sioux, talk about frozen assets!
    Linda, that is a thrill when finding a lost item again.

  4. Oh my gosh - just about everything you can think of including my mind and I am not sure at all I have it all back!

    Glad you found your earrings!

  5. I'm just like that, when I can't find something,it bugs me until I do.
    Thanks for visiting LazyonLoblolly, and your sweet comment was so appreciated, Yes I've been in a terrible way since the loss of our best friend(Dale)she was a very smart dawg, I miss her!
    Thank you for comment, your a sweetheart!

  6. What a GREAT poem, Barbara! And how I identify with losing an earring. I can't tell you how many I've lost, found, and re-lost. (And usually, it's one of my favorite that I lose.) I have about as many single earrings as I have single socks. I've actually worn a mismatched pair of earrings deliberately 'cause I have lost their mates.

  7. What a great poem with a happy ending--or should I say a silver lining!

  8. I love the way you tell a story within your poem. It had a beginning, a middle and a happy happy ending! I'm glad you found your earring.
    P.S. I gave you the Stylish Blogger award. congrats and check it out on my blog.
