Buttercup (poem)

 

The girl with the buttercup nose

Smiles in the sunshine as she

Runs across the wild field

To climb up a giant pear tree

That isn’t as big as it used

To be to the girl with the buttercup nose

And she smiles because

She doesn’t know how to frown yet

Even though it’s easy for her to lie

And easy for her to feel guilty

Enough to apologize to explain

She just didn’t want to share her

Sidewalk chalk with the spoiled

Little girl from down the street

Who wore chubby freckles and

Pink stretchy hairbands

I really like the imagery of this poem, Rose West. I also like the fact that it's one sentence long. Very clever. Thank you for sharing it.

Aloha Rose...I read this poem out loud the 2nd reading and found it had an energetic flow I had missed the first reading...I particularly liked the line

"And she smiles because

She doesn’t know how to frown yet "...

Thanks for the share...Larry

Simple and cute. I'm such a fan of poetry that reads easy and unfolds simply in my mind. I'll take a sweet little morsel like this over a complicated or elite piece of poetry any day. Thanks for the post. Cheers.
