Gratuitous Poetry Posting

The ten year old Llama-ette brought home her creative writing portfolio from St. Marie of the Blessed Educational Method. Heretofore she has been known as the mathematical one in the family, but evidently she has some real literary ability as well. A sample:


When I went to Maine,
Blue waves came to me.

When I look at them,
They are so pretty.

When I go to bed,
I can hear them.

When I wake up,
They still wash on land.

When I sit down,
They still wash.

When I hear about them,
I remember.

I must say that I certainly couldn't summon up that kind of imagery when I was her age.

She also has a humourous side:

[Llama-ette] my sister
Had a blister.
It was very red
On her head.

Bella, my pet
Likes the sunset.
She is very nice
To the mice.

She was the one who came up with "chappy" lo those many years ago, right? If so, shouldn't be all that surprising.

I still say it's an excellent description.
