Spring, by my daughter – Poem 30/30


Kids playing under a blossoming tree in Centra...




is a great time of year.




it always brings good cheer.




I like it a lot.




It’ll give you great thought.




is a nice time to play.




it makes a great day.


(c) 2013  – My Daughter, age 9



This is it! My final poem to meet the 30 poems in 30 days challenge. I am so pleased I was able to join in the fun. I met some new blogging friends, learned about myself and others, branched out into other poetic genres, and generally had a wonderful time. I saved my daughter’s poem for the last. We are entering a local poetry contest together, and this is her submission. She came out of the bathtub one evening, all excited, and said, “Mommy, I wrote a poem!” I said, “Great! Let me read it.” She said, “Well, I need a pencil, I’ve only written in my mind, so you can’t read it yet.”

After a minute of furious pencil scribbling, she hands this poem over to me. The spacing is how she wrote it.


I love this so much. I love her so much.  I am so lucky to be her Mom.

    • I used to write stories and poetry when I was young, and I was ridiculed for it. So using my opposite parenting style, I enter hers into contests and post online for the world to see. I nurture creativity in my home. I’m so proud of her, but mostly just so happy, because she is happy and secure.
