It’s Day 12 in Rena Traxel’s AtoZ Poetry Challenge and today is K is for Kids. If you check out Rena’s blog post you will discover an amazing online tool where you can mix and match words to make a poem, how cool! I think I’m addicted already. I accidentally made one up about a dog, so I may as well show you the dog poem I wrote a few days ago and the Little Red Riding one since dogs are like wolves, well it’s a loose enough link lol.
“Little Red, Little Red,
Fancy a dinner for two?
Oops I mean one.
one caped crusader,
one juicy cherry from the tree,
one red berry
is good enough for me.”
“What juicy cherry?
To whom am I speaking?”
Wolf popped out of the toaster
and Little Red did not want to get buttered too,
so she flew,
’cause she knew
wolf was trouble.
“Oops!” said Wolf.
He remembered to peek,
but he forgot to sneak
to granny’s house
down by the creek.
Granny’s are smart,
she raced through the wood,
with hair net in hand,
and covered Wolf’s face,
like a wild hog caught in a net.
Wolf ran around
arms flailing like branches in the wind,
and to his great surprise,
Little Red showed up
and caught him in her cape.
Granny pulled out a muffin
and gave it to Wolf to eat.
“Yummy!” he said, “What’s in it?”
Wandering free as a bird in Spring time
Going for walk with the family,
Sniffing at the smells on the ground, all around here,
Wagging my tail as I chat with my doggy friends.
Pant! Pant! Waggle! Waggle! Lot’s to explore here.
Sniff! Sniff! Chase! Chase! squirrels galore.
Scampering along is my favorite pastime,
Tramp across bridges then dart up the stairs.
Pant! Pant! Wiggle! Wiggle! Time to go home now.
Woof! Woof! Wag! Waggle! See you all soon.
And today’s is:
