Sunday Morning Poetry

Put Something In

Draw a crazy picture,

Write a nutty poem,

Sing a mumble-grumble song,

Whistle through your comb.

Do a loony-goony dance

'Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world

That ain't been there before.
~ Shel Silverstein


The crazy picture is from Violet the Pilot by Steve Breen.

Hi Relyn,

This is a fun poem - haven't heard it before.

I often put something silly in the world that ain't been there before - often unintentionally ;0)

I particularly like squeezing custard through my teeth if a meal time is getting a bit aerated (as it sometimes does with 2 teenagers). I defy any one to stay grumpy when their mother has custard extruding through the gaps in their teeth!!

Have a lovely day,

xx

I hadn't paid much attention to his poetry and stories until I saw your blog. He's great, isn't he!! I love the invitation, too, I put it in my journal. Blessings Relyn, Diane

"Mumble-grumble song" sounds like the sort of noises my stomach makes when I'm hungry :)

I liked this Silverstein snippet - a poet who reminds you to keep the best of childhood in your heart.

You know my heart is tender when I read Shel Silverstein. He puts into words what sings to my heart.

I'm a big fan of Silverstein's poems! This one's great.

I'm having a giveaway over at my place to celebrate my 2-year blog anniversary, and I just wanted to let you know since it would make me pleased as punch if you were entered to win the prize!

Hope you have a beautiful week, Relyn!

xoxo Gigi

Very fun verse & image, Relyn! I'm liking the "loony-goony dance"! Husband & I were doing "improvisational dancing" yesterday... it was hilarious! No, we didn't film it and put it out on YouTube. Some things are best not seen. ;o) haha... Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))
