Lets Rap !

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Aug 30 2011, 18:49

The people they are clapping
to the kitten who is rapping
whilst the critter trying to sleep
thinks the Bla Bla noise is bleak

Three bears are busy peering
through the windows at the people
looking for their ''Goldilocks''
wondering if shes locked in moterised box !

The butterflys a flapping
as bare child lets his cat in
whilst the mother shes just sighing
wishing near the tree she could be lying

the old tree

Post  Fred West on Wed Aug 31 2011, 05:28

the tree had stood four hundred years
it heard laughter and some tears
it saw them ride on horse to come,
now it heard the cars of some
it lost the leaves of years gone by
It made some more oh how time flies
it is now four hundred how long will it be
before a man puts his eyes on me

Yes, if we could know what the ancient trees know . . . and see all they've seen. We would be wise indeed!

Thanks Fred . . . bev

Time for a bath,
the tykes mom said,
And this time when your bath is done,
don't go out the door without any clothes on.
I will be right back with your Jammie's for the night,
stop right there and where do you think you are going?
I thought I would nice,
I thought I would be kind,
So instead of using a towel I was going to go out side to air dry.

I decided to put the tree poem in my profolio because of being so long, I will have to try for another again, BUT much smaller.
My brain is thinking of a story to go with "The Lovers Tree" poem...= /
Yes, no, maybe ?
Here's a link: The Lovers Tree

THE PHOTOGAPHER

Post  Dori on Sat Sep 03 2011, 07:37

I woke up this morning,
deciding I wanted a photo of myself.
Finding the perfect blue dress,
Nothing else would do.

Make-up just right,
hair and nails too.
Gosh,
I hope the photographer is male.

Waiting my turn,
To get my photo done.
Wondering why,
Everyone is nervous?

Remember the old saying,
"Monkey see, monkey do?"
In this case,
"It's monkey sees, monkey don't do!"

I didn't know,
I wasn't told.
The photographer was male instead of human,
It's a monkey taking photos of you !
