‘Tis Time for Poetry!
Welcome Poetry Lovers! Today is the one day a week that my blog kicks it up a notch and introduces some “CLASS” (remember lower class is still a class….hahahahaha) to my blog with a day of poetry. The challenge is to follow the alphabet and each week feature a poem about something with that week’s letter – and this week our letter is:
Yep, the good old letter I. This was tough to decide on……but I finally did and I hope you like my little bit of homage to the lovely letter “I”!
By Sammy Kimmell, August 11, 2016
If your day is crummy
And you’re having a tough time
Don’t sit there like a dummy
Boredom is a crime!
Imagine that you’re on a trip
Just close your eyes and see
Imagination takes us far away
To where we want to be.
Imagine you’re all alone
No home for you in sight
Imagine you wish you were cozy and warm
Not struggling through the night.
We are so lucky, you and I
We have our happy homes
Imagine how sad it is for those
Who don’t and constantly must roam.
Imagine what a lovely world
It would be if we’d together
Find happy homes for humans and animals
So they’d all have THEIR “Forever” !
Mom and I couldn’t help but think of that John Lennon song “Imagine” when we wrote this one………………we wish that one day everyone will live in peace and harmony. I think we ALL wish for that but it seems sometimes to be so far away…………let’s hope it isn’t – let’s hope…………..and let’s always and forever……….
If you write a poem today with the letter “I”, feel free to put your blog link in my comments so others can visit you and read your work! OR alternatively, post your poem HERE in comments – I love Poetry Day – don’t you?
Love and Peace, Sammy
