There once was a woman of age
Who struggled to honor a page
With some nourishing words
Ones that sang, flew like birds,
But alas! She was never a sage.
(And such hopes are so often a cage.)
Plus it’s winter, it’s cold and it’s dark,
And her mind must be locked into “Park,”
For when she tried sharing
She ended up staring
So her writing was way off the mark.
(It did not have true meat or real spark.)
Yet she still has a child’s sense of fun
And some playtime she seldom will shun,
So she’ll pen a wee ditty
That she hopes may be witty,
that might bring out a glimmer of sun.
(Just one ray, and she’ll feel that she’s done.)
If you read this and find it quite thin,
If it don’t make you chuckle or grin,
She is sorry to bore
She will write nothing more
You can toss this one right in the bin.
(She is sorry to add to life’s din.)
I hope your mind is doing fine these days; and if not, I guess you know now you are not alone.
Have you found ways to play this month? I’d love to hear.
That kinda sums up my January too. Thanks for the fun description.
Sorry–and glad–it resonated Maura! Onward into February!
How delightful Anne! I love your creativity!
Yay for play! Thanks for writing Holli.
This was SO FUN!!!! I love it!
Glad it amused Kate. Yay for a little playtime!
This put a big smile on my face. Fun to read and also so true. Your writing always intrigues me. Thanks for the reminder to play more.
Glad it made you grin Nancy! I too need to remember to play more, especially in winter!
I love this Ann. Rhyming can be such fun, both to read and to write. And, of course, quite easy to identify with the sentiments in this one. Thank you for the smiles!
I’m glad you enjoyed it Shannon! Thanks for letting me know. I do find writing limericks fun.
