Ode to the Sparkling Icicle

Oh how the water trickles down branches

And forms you lovely, sparkling icicles.

But when winter is over, you melt, 

Until next year.

Oh exquisite, elegant icicle.

            by Dorothy

 

 

Ode to Cinnamon Buns

You are a lovely roll up of cinnamon and cream,

How you melt in my mouth, when I bite into you,

You pair perfectly with the Sunday morning routine,

Oh sweet morning treat, 

What would I do without you!

Creative Writing - Couplets 3/28/14

I Tried to Catch a Butterfly

I tried to catch a butterfly
I know I cannot tell a lie

So here is how the story goes
It is a long one; it ends at your toes

The butterfly flew over a large plain
And landed in a horse's mane

Then it soared over the trees
I had to protect myself from angry bees

The butterfly fluttered over a flower
Just then came a heavy rain shower

It flew over a pasture and rested on the fence rail
While up from the ocean dove a large whale

The whale greeted us happily, then returned to the water
But not before introducing us to her father

In the end, the butterfly flew away
I'll just catch it some other day
