A nonsense verse, once again written for my son, if you read it very fast you may find it a bit more amusing.


The Wuggle

Have you ever wondered what a wuggle’s worth?
Or worried when his wiggle went awry?
Have you ever hurried home to hide his hearth?
And hoped he hadn’t had a halibi?

A wuggle wouldn’t wiggle without weasons,
Cause weasons put the wiggle in his wump!
A wump without its wiggle is the reason,
A wuggle wouldn’t want to wear a hump!

A wuggle with a hump is hardly hairy,
Or half as happy had he had a horn,
But when he whets his whistle we’ll be wary,
And wait awhile to witness what he’s worn!

So when you want to wander with a wuggle,
The wisdom of a wuggle’s weary wit,
Will satisfy and soothe your silly struggle,
To sing a silly song and sit a bit!

This is delightful, David...one to rival Dr. Seuss! I'll wager your son loves for Dad to recite this one!

The wuggle sounds even more weird and wonderful than a Heffalump*   That was a wonderful poem, I agree with Meadowmuse,  
a definite, match for the cat in the hat.

David... i used to have the GREATEST shel silverstein site bookmarked... can't find it now because changed computers, lost all my bookmarked pages... just did a search and came up with these... enjoy! (not as good as the other one, but you'll love it if you love shel... what a major loss when he died last year... poet for both children & adults/musician/cartoonist/artist/humorist.. multi-talented individual)

Your children's work is wonderful and i'm looking forward to seeing you published.
Autograph a copy of your first book for me, ok?

Ok, here's the links... hit these

LOL at margie and her WEEBLES!!

this is GREAT D2..so creative and imaginative.
I think with all the emotions of poetry and all the things we express we forget that we can have fun with it as well,
WONDERFUL writing here.
NOW WRITE ME ONE OF THOSE AMAZING, PERFECT SONNETS OF YOURS AND QUIT PLAYING AROUND WITH POETRY !!! LOL  
(just kidding)

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.
