Birds and bees and butterflies
And anything that fills the skies;
Comets, clouds and homemade kites,
Flags with lots of stars and stripes.
Frisbees, beach balls, paper planes,
Cockatoos and whooping cranes;
Eagles, owls, sometimes chickens,
Leaves and hats when March wind quickens.
Wings and things that glide on air,
Skateboards when they do a dare;
Steam and smoke, a soapy bubble--
And sometimes cats that give dogs trouble!
Ha! Yes I have seen a flying cat or two... or around here, squirrels saving their lives from our dog Ruby. :)
I can certainly see lots of kids having fun with this one!
...and sometimes the cats make those troublesome dogs fly!
Some of my favorite lines are:
Leaves and hats when March wind quickens
Skateboards when they do a dare
Thanks, all. Another great Poetry Friday. Enjoyed reading everyone's offerings.
Thanks, Tabatha, for hosting!
What a great list poem! Can't wait to share this with kids!
Lots of fun images here! I like the back and forth progression from things in nature that fly to objects and back to nature again. I love the image of the flying cat!
Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comments, Carol and Joyce Ray!
