Wish, Wash, Wheeze March 4, 2010

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 10:07 am

all around the tiddely-dee

the elves danced with a careless glee

while all around the mushroom ring

the pixies and fairies all took wing.

with a trill-la-la and boom-ba-da-bing

the band strikes up with fiddles and strings

and creeping up the pick-a-dily

i stopped and hid behind a lily.

my eyes poked out and my ears did too

but my nose was covered, which was, Oh! too true

for that one silly lily

it tickled my nose

till the strangest sensation ran down through my toes

and darn flip flop it

how I tried to stop it

but with a


and a Wash

and a Wheeze!

out of my head came the most gigantemous sneeze.

well the fairies all stopped,

the pixies they glared,

and the elves, the elves!

oh how they stared.

and then, and then with a hop and a leap,

the swish of a hand

and one single wink

the lot of them:

elves, pixies fairies and all

were gone before i could blink.
