Street Treat

Happy as a puddle of lucky ducks

Are little ones around an ice cream truck

Something chocolate-dipped or a fruity popsicle

Just toss a coin, since the appetite’s fickle

Gay Blades

Excited children JUMP

Into big GRASSY piles

Show the world with bright smiles

Unbridled joy

Creative Cupid

Chubby little hands hold

Flowers made of paper

Fruits of youthful labor

Valentine love

Clothes Made the Man

The neighbor kids built it

A snowman in her yard

While working long, and hard

They still had fun

Watching through her curtains

Delighting in the gift

That gave her such a lift

And brought a smile

Carrots and coal and twigs

For a face, arms, and hands

Their creation looked grand

What was missing

They knocked upon her door

He needed clothes to wear

Had she something to share

Of course, she did

An old wool hat found she

And so stylish he’d be

Her dark, gray scarf

Pint Sized Picasso

The little one found a can of paint

The lid popped off with no complaint

The adventure ensued

And when it was through

The little one’s parents did faint
