The Writer

Had fun alliterating my way through the alphabet, twice. Aspirations to become a writer one day, poems will suffice for the moment.

T is for Trying. A-Z Challenge 2015

The Toucan by Shel Silverstein
Tell me who can
Catch a toucan?
Lou can.

Just how few can
Ride the toucan?
Two can.

What kind of goo can
Stick you to the toucan?
Glue can.

Who can write some
More about the toucan?
You can!

Bear In There by Shel Silverstein
There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire--
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there--
That Polary Bear
In our Fridgitydaire.

I like those two by Shel Silverstein.
He should have been my S post, but hey things aren't always as you try to make them.

  1. When I read poems like these, I feel like I'm flying with a big fat grin on my face. Thanks.

  2. That was a stretch for T but top scores for trying and sharing sensational Shel Silverstein :)


Feel inclined to indulge in words that intrigue.
