A little this – a little that!

Peach Puddle Pansy Park

on February 1, 2012

While rummaging through a big pile of folders filled to the brim with old poems and stories I’ve written, I came across my giant black folder. The thing is pretty thick, and it’s stuffed with things I had completely forgotten I’d written. Here’s a poem I wrote waaaaaay back in the days of Elementary School entitled, Peach Puddle Pansy Park.

Peach Puddle Pansy Park:

Fancy flowers filled with fragrance

Flimsy frogs fling and flop

Whirly wind winds around

Happy hoppers hop, hop, hop

Slender spiders spin sticky silk

Tall trees twist tiny twigs

Mini mockingbirds make marvelous melodies

Falling fruit if figs, figs, figs

Silent sisters stride skinny sidewalks

Bright-eyed boys bound about

Dirty dogs dig deep ditches

Punished people pout, pout, pout

Worried writers wait for wonder

Destinations dull and dark

Sad citizens slowly split

Peach Puddle Pansy Park

(as a side note – today I’ve posted my 100th post!!) 😀

    Well, look at that – you were writing alliterations probably even before you knew what an alliteration was! Very cool, and lots of fun to read – love it! And huge congrats on your 100th post! Woo Hoo! ~ Julie 🙂

    Congrats on the 100th post! You have just energized me all over again. Thanks! I am very glad you closed out this bouncing, joyful ode to the joys of the park visit with the acknowledgment that some people still don’t “get it” and go away sad and worried!
