Tribute To Our Troops by Suzae Chevalier

 

 

 

 

 

For the brave hearts that go forward each day

for US citizens would not be free

from their past dictators of tyranny.

For the brave hearts that go forward each day

We should pray for them for they

might not be here the next day.

Send prayers for them to the angels above

to bring peace to them and those they love.

We should give thanks to them

for their courage to carry on

Pray that they are safe, protected and strong,

To this we owe them.

ARTIST NANCY WALLER by Suzae Chevalier

I remember hearing a voice
‘go down this road’, was the first choice.
The road 42nd West, in south Minneapolis.
Great visual artist I would meet
She drew endangered species detailed and neat.
Nancy Waller was her name
She published booklets on endangered species
to help bring about awareness and change
to save Earth’s creatures from death and pain.
Melodie my doll, loved her most of all
Nancy has a place in her heart even though
Melodie is kind of small.
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.

Prince Walks By Poem by Suzae Chevalier

Ambience is
almost of candle light
I seem him vaguely in
restaurant/club that night.
Protected by 2 men
that are very tall
looking at him
he’s short and small.
No one knows he is there,
eating at his favorite place
without a care.
Except for my friend,
he said he came out of
“room for men”.
Prince looked at me
but I did not see,
I was too busy being hungry.
Next time I will pay the way
for his birthday with a cake on a tray.

Children Are Like Butterflies

KrendollPartyArtShowMpls

Children are like butterflies

that morph before your eyes

They can be molded–

but please sympathize.

Please treat children like

the precious beings they are-

let them take flight

and be a shining star.

Keep them smiling

even at age ten-

Make sure you really

listen to them-

and be their friend.

Children are geniuses

that can help the world

so encourage every boy and girl

that you meet to be the best they can be

for they are like the butterflies

colorful to show us how to be free.

Steve Jobs Remembered – Poem by Suzae Chevalier

steve-jobs-150x150

Something about Steve Jobs people don’t know now
his parents met in Wisc. with the cows.
Steve dad’s is Arabic so marriage was a no, no.
didn’t stop them from having a kid in San Francisco.
He invented the personal computer, the iPod, iPad, and the iPhone
he left a legacy with inventions still unknown.
Steve Jobs is compared to Albert Einstein
Steve was the genius of our time.
He never finished college with a degree
he has done a lot to help the human race succeed.
Steve Jobs we will all miss you
“Please Rest In Peace.”

Tennis with Evgeni Plushenko by Suzae Chevalier

Evgeni_Plushenko_Suzae

On the tennis courts in the

Land of a thousand lakes

Evgeni Plushenko not wearing skates.

He was playing tennis

with Ann, Ellie and me-

I took photos of Ellie swinging

Her hair carefree.

Then Ann took a photo of me and

Evgeni with his tennis attire

He was a gentlemen-

More than a medieval squire.

His coach Alexei Mishin-

I did meet-

I told him I might have Russian blood

He said you are way too pretty.

What a compliment from a coach

who made Evgeni an

Olympic World Champion

Thank you Ann for this

memory in time

Ann is an Olympic figure skating coach

who has had a very interesting life.

Hello Puppet Lady by Suzae Chevalier

1RaysSuzaeRazeLauri

Rays Key West Grille, Lake Worth Florida 2005

Hello Puppet Lady–

though they never knew you at all

You told your Krendoll stories

to toddlers who listened while they crawled.

You walked out on to the Improv stage

Razel whispered into your brain

Hemp named you Puppet Lady-

But Razel puppet got in the way.

And it seems you lived your life

Like UniCandle unicorn’s flame

in the wind

Never knowing who to cling to

When Razel’s ice spell set in.

Being Puppet Lady was tough

The toughest role you ever played

But Lake Worth created the Puppit Lady

Just ask good friend Jim Atkins who went

with you on the comedy stage.

And I would of like to have known you

But you were with Melodie Mezoree’

Lighting birthday cakes with candles

With UniCandle unicorn’s magical flame.

Hello Puppet Lady–

You’re more than our Puppet Lady

much more than your Razel puppet–

And your doll Melodie Mezoree’.

And it seems to me you lived your life

Like a puppet with no strings

With no parachute to catch you

When the Rum Shack stage fell in.

Hello Puppet Lady–

From the old man Jim Atkins in the 3rd row

Thank you for the memories At Ray’s,

South Shores and Rumshack comedy show.

And I would have liked to have been

apart of your comedy act– But Razel got in the way-

don’t worry Melodie still loves me

and UniCandle unicorn’s flame

still burns brightly on all the candles

of children’s birthday cakes.

Wish I was Maurice Chevalier’s Niece by Suzae Chevalier

MauriceSignature

I’ve would of liked to have been Maurice Chevalier’s niece

and think he would of been pleased

For I painted the Eiffel tower in the city

where he was born

too sad that he is gone.

It would have been great to be in a movie with him–

he would sing to doll Melodie ‘Wonderful Things’.

Like “Thank Heaven For Little Girls”

and she would sing Happy Birthday

and I would crown him with sparkly bling.

Thank you Maurice–

you’re the Sweetest Frenchmen in the world.

Now, he is in a photo at piano with Marilyn Monroe

they were cast in a movie together I thought you should know.

Now we have Maurice’s and Marilyn’s movies

photos and songs, to play all day or all night long.

See you in heaven Maurice Chevalier

I will sing for your birthday

a song with Melodie Mezoree’.

HENRY JACKSON THE GRACIOUS PHOTOGRAPHER by Suzae Chevalier

HenryMpls

Henry Jackson on Franklin Ave.

HenryMplsStudio

Henry in deep thought

 

 

Flashbulbs flash on camera in hand

Henry shot photos of my magical lands.

Henry the first professional photographer whom

Photographed me in different costumes.

We had a blast in city of St Paul

That is where videotaped me

Going up stairs to the carousel.

He was the first photographer who

Shot me at daycares—

He filmed my first Melodie doll.

Henry was a photographer who

Had a natural gift

He always got the children together

And they smiled with ease.

Thank you Henry for being a kind friend

A gracious photographer shooting

the very beginnings of Krendoll land.
