I thought it might be fun to post this old poem I wrote for my Grandson years ago...It made him smile.

The Predicament in Wicky Woods Last Night

The Predicament in Wicky Woods Last Night
A children's poem
(To be read with a strong English accent)

It’s the last little bit
Of daylight
And Mr. Blue Sky
Has lost his voice
And he is sinking quite quickly,
But in his last breath
He bargains with the stars

To come out
And pin him back up again.

Little Song Birds

But the pretty little Song Birds
Who have become invisible and sure
In their tree top fortress

Bring out their singing voices
And they are all screaming
For Mr. Moonlight

To lead the band
And the crickets concur.

Impasse In Wicky Woods

Now we have impasse
In Wicky Woods.
Mr. Sky’s bargain vs. the Song Birds and Mr. Moon
Which will it be
Is the question
When the suggestion
Was made
To flip a coin,

No One Has Any Change

But no one has any change.
There is only the currant,
You see,
In the light line
And no one is really sure
How to get it out

Without a really big shock.

Meanwhile Mrs. Clock

Meanwhile Mrs. Clock
Is ticking
And the old pitch pine
Has had it up to here
With all the complaining

And calls for old Mr. Owl
To settle the score,

Old Mr. Owl

But old Mr. Owl
Has grown quite feeble
In his old age
And isn’t quite sure
Just what to do
Or who to blame

And he just keeps saying it
Again and again…Who-

Amazing poems; they come from the inner recesses of the heart with sincere feelings adding fuel to the truism that poets never run short of words.
