Poetry is a lifelong delight for me.
I have written poems forever–silly poems, sad poems, prose brimming with sorrow, joy, confusion, and calm. Writing poetry for children is more of a challenge than the “off the cuff” verse I’ve penned in the past.
I hope to refine and produce some rhyme that works for children, and delights them lifelong as well.
Be watching here for developments, like this verse, revised from long ago in my collection...and if you want more, let me know with a comment.
When a cat has a whisker that’s bent
you wonder just where his paws went.
What secret or clandestine place
lured in his inquisitive face?
What tempting faint curiosity
invited him to ‘come look and see?’
You wonder just where a cat went
when he comes home with a whisker that’s bent.
