Maria And Victoria Play Date by Suzae Chevalier


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.

My Niece Allisa by Suzae Chevalier


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



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.

Renee My Cousin by Suzae Chevalier

Little Suzy with toddler Renee in New Jersey

Little Suzy with toddler Renee in New Jersey

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,
but she had to wait till they fired the head guy and his mistress with long hair.
When Spelling TV was bought out, she had to train lawyers all the nuts and bolts.
Renee was born on island with sand
she was born in the Dominican Republic which is grand.
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.

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.

Sonny Days – Poem by Suzae Chevalier

Driving down A1A

I was with friend Sonny

during very sunny days.

Playing her radio very loud

we had a blast driving

through town.

Down, down to

Ft. Lauderdale

where there is a

tunnel that made

me pale.

Yes, I couldn’t wait

to get to the other side
cars coming at you
you could not hide
making it though and still alive

everything feels just so fine.

At the library we did type

getting things kicked out

like playing a melodie pipe.

Eating at a restaurant that very night,

Ft Lauderdale has changed so much in sight.

One things for sure and do say,

it was fun remembering those very

Very “Sonny Days”.

Jack Barry who was born on April 17th

Born a day before me he was Aries all firey–

He was a great friend and artist indeed.

He took me to lunch when I first came

To the “Artist Hut”.

Yes, Jack had a studio in Flamingo Park

Next to railroad tracks where dogs barked.

He did all kinds of style painting–

Fresco he was known for—

I have his one big painting by my door.

He was a great storyteller and a U.S. Vet-

He had a very interesting life of all the people

I have met.

I inherited his butterfly necklace people do see–

When I wear it around my neck all sparkly.

Thanks Jack for being a friend to me.

ARTIST NANCY WALLER by Suzae Chevalier

I remember hearing a voice,

“go down this road” was the choice.

Road 42nd Street West in south Minneapolis.

Great visual artist I would meet,

She drew wild life animals detailed and neat.

Nancy Waller was her name,

she drew endangered species

to help bring about awareness and change.

Melodie my doll, loved her most of all,

she went to her see her at the museum,

took photos with her that where very pleasing.

Melodie was happy for Nancy designed,

coloring books of Melodie just cute and fine.

Nancy got my books off to a great start,

she inspired me and has a pure heart.

Thank you Nancy for inspiration and passion too,

you’re a great artist, through and through.
