Myrtle The Turtle
~*Marge Tindal*~

Myrtle the turtle
in her walk-around girdle
is certainly a slowpoke to see

She heads out at dawn
for a trip across the lawn
promising to be back at three

If she doesn't make it home by dark
I don't worry one little bit
Cause if she has to stay overnight
her house is perfectly fit


*A little smile for the rug-rats~

*giggling with delight* this is just so very cute. love it and it is a prefect way to start the day. My 11 year old daughter was sitting beside me when I was reading it and she loves it too. You had us both laughing. A wonderful way to start the morning. Thank you, so very much.

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

Marge - Is this an autobiography?  lol - I got the feeling as I read this poem that you were writing about something deeper than the apparent theme.  Of course, I might be wrong.  Perhaps Myrtle was so slow because she spent too much time making her house fit?  Regardless, this is a very sweet poem.

Jon~
Thanks so much ... glad to share a smile~

LongJohn~
Well ... let me tell you how deep this one goes~

I took a child from my mentoring group to the pet shop
and bought her a turtle.
She named it Myrtle.
So, I said to myself,
"Self I said ... let's write a poem about Myrtle The Turtle."

LOL ... 'Honest Injun' !

Thank ya' for the deep dip in the think-tank~
*Hugs*

This is so cute. I think I'm gonna save it to read to my niece next time I see her.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?

This is too, too cute!  

You MUST publish a children's book of poetry!
It would be a bestseller!

Got to love anything as laid back as a turtle.  I used to have a Desert Turtle that I let roam my house.  He was so cool.  I made him salads and he would chomp so loudly it was hard to believe such a big sound was coming from such a little mouth.
