Everything's Coming Up Roses


Everything’s Coming Up Roses
By C. L. Collar
 You smile at someone and brighten their day.
To someone lonely, a kind word you say,.
You receive in return a good feeling inside,
And everything’s coming up roses!


 You make a new friend from an old foe.
To a small child, patience you show.
You receive in return a good feeling inside,
And everything’s coming up roses!



 To someone in need you lend a helping hand.
In defense of a friend, you take a firm stand.
You receive in return a good feeling deep inside,
And everything’s coming up roses!



You touch each heart with gentle love.
You’ve earned a place with God above.
You’ve received a good feeling deep inside,
And everything’s coming up roses!

Finding Fey ~ The Banshee's Bargain


Finding Fey
By C.L. Collar

The Banshee's Bargain




      He turned and slowly made his way back to the fire. Her timing was horrible. He wasn’t ready to meet his maker. He had so many things left to do, but most importantly, he needed to get his novel published so he could leave his family debt free. The bank had given him one more week. She wouldn’t.

As he entered the parlor, he was greeted by a beautiful woman dressed to the nines in the latest fashion.  She had already poured herself a brandy from the decanter that always sat on the sidebar. In fact she had made herself right at home. She took a dainty sip of the sweet liquor and sat back in her chair, smiling.

Thomas had heard that the Banshee could take this guise, but he really hadn't believed it was true. Apparently he was wrong. He poured himself a whiskey and sat down in the chair facing hers.

“I’m glad to see someone will get enjoyment from my death,” he said, nonchalantly twirling his drink. 

Here is where you can buy Finding Fey!

Oh Bonnie Lass


Oh Bonnie  
Lass            
By Cathy Collar 



Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
St Paddy has driven the snakes from all of Irish ground.
He took his fine shalalee and tapped it on the ground,
Now there’s nar a snake to be seen in all of Ireland.

Oh bonnie lass did you hear the news that’s goin’ round?
I found a four leaf clover growing on a fairy mound.
I stuck it in me hat and danced me all around
Now I will spread my Irish luck to all of Ireland.

Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
With my lucky clover a Leprechaun I found.
I followed him to his pot of shiny gold so round.
I stole his gold, took it to town and passed it all around.

Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
I have now been banished from my sweet Ireland.
That fairy gold turned to dust when touched by a man’s hand.
So like the snakes I’ll nar be seen in all of Ireland.
