Love of Head & Nose :: A Poem

This poem is very dear to me as it was among the many 'silly' poems that me and my little brother would sing together during those fun times! A kind reader stopped by recently advising that this poem is as old as me when he'd read it last as a young man. Not sure where I got this from, but its worth a share...


My head is in love with my nose

Sounds silly to you I suppose

The nose does not know about this

The eyes never reveal it

The lips on this subject is closed

The face wont consent to disclose

That it is really in love with my nose

It is hopelessly, helplessly,

Drawn by it endlessly

Follows wherever it goes

My head is in love with my nose...

my head is in love with my nose!


Please feel free to leave me any comments. Thanks for your time =)

...absolutely delightful - you have inspired the epi-man to write something like this - nothing wrong with returning to our childhood - it's a pure and innocent place to be - and this piece is just so uninhibited too!

...yes I must follow this one up too as I see here 5 months later - lol - and acknowledge another classic as written by you ...... a lot of your writing awakens the child within me - and let's face it - if we're lucky - we retain a certain childlike capacity with us the rest of our lives ..... it's called ' creativity'

I'm humbled by your words epi :)

I've always wanted to write gr8 poems, but landed up writing childish lines, I guess I'm not that bad in my writing after all, its good to know someone appreciates childishness too :) And with me, its not much abt being lucky, just that I never grew up! LOL :D

.......I think there's a distinction - there's childish and childlike - I would say your writing, in this genre, is definitely childlike .....which is a wonderful quality for any adult to retain - childish, on the other hand, always makes me think of immaturity or poor behavior - like me, a Canadian - lol - whining about the winter - thank goodness, summer is finally here - lake erie time 10:56am
