Mommy and Suzy with Doll by Suzae Chevalier

Suzy is happy that mommy is near
she all holds her and her doll so dear.
Suzy is wearing her favorite red shoes
Suzy dances in them to her favorite tune.
In the city of Cottage Grove is were they were
Suzy memories with her doll when she was a girl
are etched in her mind with her mommy too
this photo was taken before Suzy went to school.

Maria And Victoria Play Date by Suzae Chevalier

Maria_Victoria_Krendoll_LandBest

Excited to see me they waited anxiously by door

within minutes a make believe land was on the floor.

Maria hid Razel right away, hiding her for the rest of the day.

Then of course Victoria would play

pretend games with Victoria and doll Melodie Mezoree’.

Years later I would give a party for real

it would be Victoria’s birthday party in the Wisconsin hills.

Again Razel puppet would be hidden and not to be seen

she would freeze the party for she was mean.

I took photos to remember this time

A birthday celebration for Victoria

With sister Maria and friends that helped find

children had to find the treasures

and break the ice spells cast

Say “Happy Birthday to Victoria”

while she sat in birthday chair at last

I took photos to remember this time

A birthday celebration for Victoria

With sister Maria and friends that helped find

hidden crown that is divine.

Good things must come to an end

I packed up my props and said goodbye to dear friends.

Baby Allisa would grow up to be
a mother of Mya who is now 3.
I will always have found memories
of Allisa who is very outgoing yet very sweet.
Allisa came with me as an helper to my book readings.
She helped set up the props for my set–
She even was enthusiastic and didn’t fret.
She was even a princess in my video shoot
it was fun, it was a hoot!
I have Halloween photos of the party at the mansion on Lyndale,
when Allisa and her friends had fun till to the upscale.
Yes, Allisa takes great photos and even video’s too
we shot a funny video at a middle school.
Yes, by then Allisa was taller than me
yes, she had grown into a preteen.
I just saw Allisa and her daughter Mya just last year
I gave little Mya an toy owl, she was in good cheer.
Thanks Allisa for all the found memories–
they will remembered by me!

Angel My Niece by Suzae Chevalier

AngelMeBest

 

Baptized in church in Minneapolis
it was a special day I would not miss.
I have a photo of you and me
we both were smiling happily.
Then when your first Christmas came
I got to see you once again.
First Christmas for baby Angel my niece
It was happy and filled with peace.
Then of course I would only see you sparingly.
I have pictures of your volleyball game–
you are a teenager now you don’t look the same.
I also have photos of you and with Allisa at your grandma’s,
You are very happy just because.
Because you are a sweet and caring girl
You are precious to the world.
I’m glad I saw you graduate
It was a glorious and memorable day.
Happy Birthday I also wanted to say
I hope you received your card I sent your way.

On the other coast by the sea
is my cousin Renee who is sweet as can be.
She has two children who are almost preteens
they are really creative with lots of energy.
Renee works in L.A.’s entertainment industry-
in fact she worked with lawyers at Spelling TV.
Renee got promoted as manager as one of her first jobs out there,

When Spelling TV was bought out, she had to train lawyers all the nuts and bolts.
Renee was born on island with sand

Her dad worked an ambassador in the government
a war was going on the island, so as a baby on a ship she went.
Renee and her mom got the States alright,
lots of stories for Renee has had an interesting life.
Her friends tell her a movie she should write
I think it would be a great movie
maybe a comedy, a drama, nothing boring or light.
Best wishes Renee on more stories to share which are upbeat
it will keep the movie goers on the edge of their seat.

MADELEINE, ELSIE AND YARDLEY

PA152216147165

Waiting patiently outside on a rock

Elsie would have toys that she would talk.

I would drive up in my blue caravan–

inside van was toys from Krendoll land.

Playing downstairs with Melodie and Razel

stories we made up with Razel voice nazel.

Madeleine celebrated her birthday with my fantasy land

Madeleine was crowned wearing gold dress so grand.

Yardley a younger sister would play along soon

she loved playing with Razel but Melodie too!

I have photos and videos of “Melodie’s Meltdown”

Madeleine and Elsie would have unfreeze Krendoll town.

Now I will put together a collection of photos to remember

of the three girls before Christmas in December.

Sister Lisa’s Surprise by Suzae Chevalier

Suzy_Lisa

As a kid I made a fake “me” doll,
she was like me but not too tall.
I sewed her up with bathroom towels,
she was original and had no jowls.
Practical joke I did make,
with Funny Doll that was fake.
I put fake doll in my bed,
covered the blankets over dolls head.
Then my sister went to sleep,
I told her from far away,
I was sleeping “Please don’t make a peep? ”
My sister said, “Are you alright?
you look very sick looking tonight.”
I replied, with a yell, ha! Ha!
Then I ran to room laughing like hell.
My sister got scared, and then she laughed,
It was very funny, it was a blast.
These funny childhood memories are the ones that last.

Grandma’s House

GrandmaChevalier

My Dear Grandma Vivian Chevalier

 

My dear grandma always wrote to me–she loved reading my poetry. She was a great poet herself…she was a great poet like no one else. Remembering how sweet she was to me–Grandma here is a poem for you!

Butterfly, butterfly flying through the air–
flittering here and flittering there.
Landing on a flower just ahead
your wings glow on a flower bed.
I imagine my grandma’s flowers with color
each one is unique, not like the other.
It was in the spring with fragrance everywhere
it was happy times without a care.

Found memories of bread baking in the air
a special time I did share.
with Grandmother who is special and sweet–
she made all kinds of goodies and treats.
Like marsh mellows with fruit and whip topping too
I liked eating it after my dinner was through.
In backyard I did climb a tree
hurt my hand with a twig, I did bleed.
Rushed to the doctors really fast
they put stitches in, they didn’t last.

Memories of the farm I will remember
like Christmas time in December, receiving my Suzy doll with curls and funny times in the barn with the pigs…something my sister can not out live.

Thank you Grandma for believing in me-you are sweet and dear to me.

Storyteller Emma Jean by Suzae Chevalier

Emma Jean has

power to story tell-

she creates stories and she does it well.

Now she told a story I will never forget

she weaves the story of the “Headless Horseman”.

telling her story in Missouri at a really young age,

better then Grimm’s Fairy Tales writes it on the page.

Her voice changes in fluctuation and stance

weaving words like a rhythmic dance.

Even though Emma Jean’s gone

I will tell her stories so they will live on.
