The (optional) prompt, today, is to write a poem for children. This could be in the style of a nursery rhyme, or take a cue from Edward Lear or Shel Silverstein. It could rhyme — or not. It could be short — or not. Happy writing! I love Shel Silverstein.
Milly Malooly’s daddy drank tea,
Sally Sullivan’s mommy had coffee with cream.
Milly and Sally sipped soda each morning
And shared each other’s dreams.
Said Milly to Sally, “I can jump and climb like a squirrel.”
Said Sally to Milly, “I’ll be a bird and fly ’round the world.”
“We’ll see things and be things, like no ordinary girls.”
On this they both agreed,
While mommy added sweet to her coffee,
And daddy squeezed lemon into his tea.
