No Poem?

No Time for a Poem

Porridge for breakfast,
Spaghetti-Os for lunch,
Hot dogs and broccoli
For dinner to munch;

Throwing the frisbee,
Endless sweet talk,
Seeing a deer
On a long walk;

Puzzles and cars,
Winnie the Pooh,
Books and paint brushes,
Laughter and glue!

Sorry, I'm busy -
I can't write a poem
For I have my grandkids
Right here in my hoem.

Forgive me for slacking -
Not writing a lot -
There are songs to be sung
and hugs to be caught!

~~~~~~~~~~~*******~~~~~~~~~~*******~~~~~~~~

But I do want to mention - a Woo-hoo!
Nancy Drew Anthology is now available on Amazon in paperback.  My poem, "The Missing Mother's Message" is right in there with other poems from other poets.

  1. Fun poem that practically wrote itself -- love that there's Pooh and porridge and puzzles and paint brushes. :)

  5. Congratulations on your poem in the anthology! As for your poem-writing, I'm sure you could and do write poems on any subject, as you've proved today by writing about not writing!

  6. I love "hugs to be caught", & your poem deserves to be somewhere where people can read it and remember what's important!
