NaPoWriMo 2017-06 -- a Children's Poem for the Young


 
 
Henry and the Pansies
 
Henry was up late last night
Munching from Grandpa's pansies
 
Henry slept in this morning
Still full of Grandpa's tasties.  

Grandpa went to his garden
He'd water before the sun

He found a mess, almost cried
Now what have those rabbits done
 
Grandma said they've eaten bad
They ate most of your pansies   

Grandpa did cry knowing that
What to do, they're not candies
 
Both put their heads together
Grandma said, think I've got it
 
Grandpa wrung his hands, waiting
Waiting for Grandma, say what
 
We can build them a shelter
A nice place where they can eat
 
And come sleep, Grandpa added
Then they made a hutch for them 
 
A hangout for the bunnies
They could eat and sleep and dream
 
Henry was happy, he laughed
Grandpa laughed and Grandma smiled
 
And Grandpa's pansies were saved

Jim, this is sweet & playful & just how I imagine a child's day in a grandparent's garden might be. So happy Grandma's pansies were saved :-) Thanks for participating in my prompt! Have a great weekend. -Stacie
