The trail into the land of poetry

I was biking on my mountain bike, passing all the trees,

As the honey bees kept whizzing by and the leaves blossomed green,

I felt a gentle breeze in the air as I rode up the mighty peek,

I felt myself sinking and realized I was in a creek,

I watched the silky water flow so smoothly over the rocks,

I got my bike out of the water and standing there was a fox,

She started to speak to me in a soft and syrupy way,

I was shocked that she could talk and I didn't know what to say,

She told that there was a land where everything was so pretty,

I wanted to go there and so I asked, but all she did was look down and said there is only one way...

"The Trail into the land of Poetry!"


Inspiration: I absolutely love limericks (poems and stanzas that rhyme) and I wanted to write my own so I wrote one about poetry!

I watch as the wisps of dandelions float into the air like little marshmallows,

I see the honeybees fly into the fragrance of the flowers as they set the sunny fairy-tale and I know a new day is about to begin,

I see the trees dancing to the sunny beat and I know the music of the morning awaits me,

I discover a new world amongst the trees and flowers where everything is blooming with joy and everyday is sunny,

I watch as little children play outside, basking in the sunlight,

I go outside, breathe in the fresh air and I bathe in the silky sunlight and I definitely know that the sun is waiting for me!
