Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear

Teddy bear, teddy bear next to me, All tucked in as comfy as can be. I give him a huggle, He gives me a snuggle, All night long we cuddle, cuddle, cuddle. Teddy bear, teddy bear cozy and tight, All bundled up until the morning light. ©2019 Elizabeth Wrobel


A Splash

A splash, a splish, A hop, a skip. A pond, a stone, Perfectly thrown. ©2019 Elizabeth Wrobel


Lost in the Woods

I went walking in the woods, following the trees, Following the trail of a cool summer breeze. Now I’m lost in the woods. Which way do I go? Which way did I come from? I just don’t know. There was a way in, but is there away out? Or will I be stuck in theDisplay


Sailing

The wind is blowing just fast enough, To guide a sailboat without the waves being rough. Setting up the sails to blow in the wind, Watching as the shoreline disappears again. When the water is a guide, there is only one place to be. When the wind is a compass, there is so much toDisplay

Cloudy Skies

There are two kinds of clouds so don’t get them mixed up. One kind I hate. One kind I can’t help but love. Gray clouds create such a gloomy day. White fluffy marshmallow clouds call me out to play. Cloudy skies don’t have to mean sorrow. Cloudy skies can bring happiness. Raising hopes for aDisplay

Snakes

Snakes slither and they hiss, Be careful, some snakes are poisonous. Some are black, some are green, some are red, Some snakes are friendly, some we dread.

Pocket Poem

A poem short enough to memorize, Small enough for a pocket to hold inside. A poem sweet enough to share, Powerful enough to carry everywhere. The idea of a pocket poem was very smart, It’s the perfect size to live within the heart. ©2018 Elizabeth Wrobel

Plip-Plop

Plip-plop, Raindrops, Misty notes begin, Waltzing on the wind. Plip-plop, Raindrops, The sweetest melodies, Humming through the trees. Plip-plop, Raindrops, Tapping out the beat, Dancing in the street. Plip-plop, Raindrops, Rhythm never stops, Drumming on the rooftops. ©2019 Elizabeth Wrobel


Hamsters

Hamsters Hamsters are cute and furry, They run around in your cage, But their eyesight is still a blurry, They will eat and climb until they die of age. Hamsters go “squeak squeak!” Then drift off to sleep, When they wake up they stuff food in their cheek, Then dig in their bedding down deep.

Three Cardinals

I saw three cardinals outside today. One stayed but two flew away. The passing glimmer, brightly colored red, Right before my eyes as they flew above my head. Headed toward the feeder, perhaps for a snack, The third one I watched jump from branch to branch. ©Elizabeth Wrobel
