Hurry, Mary! Silly Mary…

02/25/2019

“Knock-Knock Knickity-Knock”
From houses on the clock
The cuckoos sing from up atop
“Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!”

“Blast! It’s late, I’m not on break!”
Mary the potter exclaims
“I gotta skedaddle, gotta do it fast
Or I’ll get in trouble… Blast! Oh Blast!”

“Knock-Knock Knickity-Knock”
She raced against the clock
The master’s watch was ticking fast
“Ah, Mary! You’re here at last!”

“Pardon sire for I got here late
I ran and fetched some clay”

Silly she smiled, the master sighs
“Good, if that’s what you say”

Hi! I'm Rose. I fancy myself a poet sometimes... But really, I'm just a dreamer- a wonder wanderer. Words are my photo albums.
