Tuesday Teatime: Poem

Lisa shared this poem with me a few months ago. I wanted to share it with you all!

Hi Julie,
We just started tea time about a month ago and my boys 7 and 10 are loving it.  I think they love the treats from the local bakery the best, but they seem to be enjoying the poetry as well.  Here is a poem we came up with today.  It was inspired by Jack Prelutsky’s It’s Raining Pigs and Noodles. It all started when I declared that there was something floating in my tea and Abie (10) said that it sounded like a poem and gave me the next line.  I got out the paper and pencil and we were off and running.  Thank you for all that you are doing.  We are new to Brave Writer and just started the on-line class with Jean.  So far, it’s all great.

There’s something floating in my tea
It’s making me so very angry
I stick my finger in the cup
But I can’t seem to fish it up
It floats away each time I sip
Without success my lid will flip
If I had a magic wand
I’d say “Hocus pocus speck be gone!”
I decide to drink it down
While I wear one big frown  (Mo wanted: While I wear a royal crown)
How I hope that in my mug
That speck was not a little bug!

Written by Lisa, Abie and Mo Gottfried
