I am not so whimsy writer’s island #22 whimsy

Pretty girls with pink ribbons and curls
Grow up to be women
Tough little boys with army truck toys
Grow up to be men
Puppies say please, while scratching their fleas
Grow up to be dogs
Play ring around the rosey, it’s a pocket full of posey
Hopscotch in the park, hide 'n' seek in the dark
At the edge of the yellowbrick road, tell me do you see a toad
If you do, give him a kiss

  2. This is definitely filled with whimsy, Pamela. Hmm, I hope the toad turns into something good if I kiss him. LOL.

  6. You say you felt lame writing this, but that's what we have to do - force ourselves out of the mould - to make any progress as poets. Your poem is of the kind to make a gaggle of children giggle.

    Where can I find a toad?
    I’m in need of a handsome prince.
    But how do I kiss the toad
    when I find it?
    I can’t even touch my toes.

  11. Pamela, never criticize yourself for trying, pat yourself on the back, because so many wouldn't even think of it. I like your whimsy and the last line is terrific.
