My Magical World

Posted April 13, 2009 & filed under Poem of the Day.

There it is, just sitting there
a red and yellow bluebonnet
in the cold windy rainforest
but this is a clue.
The rain is as cold as a
Sunday ice cream sandwich.
Animals will come together
bears and wolves will walk
side by side
the people in the war
will come together
and instead of fighting they will
just talk it out.

Although I am small
I am good and sweet.
I am watery and cute.
Sometimes I have seeds and
sometimes I don’t!
I bark but won’t bite,
I am fluffy forever. . .
I am the Chihuahuatermelon!
