A poem inspired by Lewis Carroll.
|Galunking with the Poppets
Feeling cubey, I went to the park today
just to watch the poppets play.
The adelic gardens were in bloom,
with peeonits they were festooned.
A fountain starled in bright sunlight
as Ohno birds circled in flight.
The poppets galunked in their play
leaving beavos strewn along the way.
The jairce breeze relaxed my mind
but soon I had run out of time
and so with a smrown I said farewell
leaving my fantasy to return to ... well,
it's a word you know but I won't place in an "E" rated poem
Just for fun - an entry in Week 15 of "Poetic Exploration" [E]
With full inspirational credit to Lewis Carroll whose wonderful Jabberwocky first got me interested in the world of poetry....
