A Nursery Rhyme
I do not want to go to bed;
it’s not quite dark outside.
Ideas dancing in my head
are begging to be tried.
I heard the moon say to the stars
It’s time to go and play.
I will be full, the night is ours.
Oh, Mama, can’t I stay?
I do not want to go to sleep
until the party’s over.
The heaven’s promises are deep;
they won’t wait till I’m older.
Today I’m hosting for dVerse Poetics. I’ve offered the theme of children’s poetry for the prompt. So take a trip back in time and play a little. Write a poem for a child and have a little fun of your own.
