Poe-a-tree hop 11-17

Poe-a-tree hop, ok let see if we can write a poem of short tail or a photo essay about this “The day I spent with _________.” A person place or thing from history, must have been someone , place or thing you admire like Ben Franklin, Marie Antoinette, Annie Oakley, Mae West, Ansel Adams, Cleopatra, Suzanne RD Tata, Tatonka, you name it. Have fun with it, what did you talk about or see.

My day with Nick

I was beside myself
Watching that jolly old elf
Tap, tap nip and tuck
Its Johnny’s new truck

A stitch here and there
Comb her hair, paint her nose
It’s a dolly named Polly for Molly
I declare this is more fun than a county fair

Main and bridle
Clip and clop
Hobby horse ready to ride
This one is for Amelia

Planes and trains
Toot, toot
 Chug, chug chew, chew
Away we flew

Lunch break
Cookies and milk
Deck the hall mistletoe and holly
Popcorn cranberry chain around the dolly

Its getting late
I have to run
Its been fun
Helping you get ready for your Christmas run

As I saddle old paint
To get where I Ain’t
He laughs and said
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Thank you for hopping by and god bless

Hello Roy:
Sure enjoyed your poetry of Christmas! I hadn't even entertained the thought of Christmas and the christmas spirit yet, although now I will. It'll be here before very long.
