Razel Puppet

Nanny Days


Loading my van with a ton of toys

bringing it to play with for the girls and boys.

Razel and Melodie doll and Sabrina the smallest of them all.

I also bring my props for my birthday show

Children watch as UniCandle unicorn’s horn becomes aglow.

Now children blow out the birthday cake

made out of cardboard; it is fake.

That doesn’t bother them none

they decorate it with beads, they have so much fun.

Now Razel puppet always tries to ruin the party

She shows up late always, tardy.

Children set traps for Razel, so she will go

Away from the fun of the birthday show.

The stories ending always turns out for the best

Razel is kicked off Krendoll island she didn’t past the test.

Bahamas Cruise 2006

MelodieRazelBahamas 077

On a cruise ship I did sail

going to the Bahamas

remembering it well.

Listening to bands that played

dance hits of their day–

That’s when the word

happy meant gay.

Taking photos on the deck

eating lobster, shrimp and steak.

Raining when ship does land

can not sunbathe on the sand.

Walking around to see the sights
Bahama’s tote bag I did buy–

Along with 2 handmade

dolls pale and white.

One with black hair other with yellow–

one doll icy-blue other doll mellow.

Names “Razel” and “Melodie”

are sewn into each separate doll

in a craft like looking mall.

Photos taken of dolls with me–

even Bahamian lady very pleased.

I put them in my Bahama’s tote

More sightseeing before getting on boat.

Walking around the town

bargains everywhere to be found.

Now I will go back some day soon

I will look for stars and moons.

Penny Brings Melodie To Life – Poem by Suzae Chevalier


Penny with her sewing flair–
sews Melodie doll and yarns her hair.
Penny makes Melodie into a small doll
once Melodie’s alive the two have a ball.
Melodie writes Penny once in awhile
she even visited her in the hospital.
Melodie had to make sure Penny was alright
in fact Penny told the nurse, where is Suzy tonight?
Right then Melodie, Razel and me soon arrived
to sit by friend Penny’s dear old side.
Now Penny gets healthy and recovers real soon
she enjoys her grandchildren and her new life too.
Thank you Penny for all your generosity
if it wasn’t for you, the world would not have Melodie.

Razel Goes To Philly 2007


Catching a long train from Penn Station
Me, Razel went to Philly for a mini vacation.
Traveling over the longest bridge
chugging along a vast mountain ridge.
Visited publisher in Philly that day
I didn’t come out, only Melodie Mezoree’.
Then I went home take to a nap-but kept on my Bora Bora hat.
Waking up refreshed to sightsee–
Taxi driver picked me up for free.
I saw statues with soldier on horse
Me being a ham for the camera–photo taken
by Masonic Temple plaque of course.
This was the last photo for we felt under attack
afraid of homeless people sleeping on their backs.

Razel Goes To Memphis 2006

razel-in-memphis-- 2

“Lisa Marie” plane across from Graceland-

that is where I pose for my fans…

Brick wall with graffiti by fans for the King,

just plain writing with no sparkling bling.

Elvis’s mansion surrounded by gate,

store nearby with Elvis plate.

And of course an Elvis toy

given as gift for girl or boy.

I, Razel did take photo with the King-

I got a kiss, but wanted a fling.

Then up north from there is downtown

stopped and listened to Jazz all around.

I took photos with ‘singers of the blues’

posed sideways with no shoes

singers laughing totally amused.

Then me sleepy Razel took a 1 hr snooze

while driving to Florida to get on a cruise.

Memphis was fun don’t get me wrong–

this is the place where Elvis still sings his songs!
