When life seems too befuddlin'
Take time to do some spuddlin'
Go splashin' while it's puddlin'
Go barefoot in the rain.

When things are poor to middlin'
And both your thumbs are twiddlin'
Stand on your head while fiddlin'
For smi-l-in' out loud!!

When all about are snigglin'
Get all your toes a'wigglin'
Then soon you will be gigglin'
Your doldrum's sure to wane.

When things get willy-nilly
Do something brash and silly
Eat ice-cream with your chili
For smi-l-in' out loud!

When days are feelin' maudlin
Watch baby ducklings waddlin'
There's always one that's dawdlin'
That's no time for disdain

When life is too befuddlin'
Make time to go out spuddlin'
That's splashin' while it's puddlin'
For smi-l-in' out loud!!!

I do like knowing that Reflections will carry
with it a theme for ALL ages, just as the
site does...

So, guess what?

Yep, you guessed it!

Nan, you've put a huge smile on my face this miserably snowy day! What a great poem.

Now if you could just come and shovel ...

Hugs, Marti

You think it is because I know you so well that I can almost hear you reciting this one out loud!  LOL, now you know this is MY personal favorite, all sonnets, and "proper" poetry aside - this one rocks!

Well, you've gotta know that I LOVE this one,
and now I want some more rain to play in.
Gotta go spuddlin'!

This really is something else... really, I've never read something quite like this poem.  And I've never heard of "spuddlin'" before.  Maybe I should get out more, eh?

Well, you've really shown your ability to be unique, Nan... and that is itself a reason for this to earn a page in Reflections.  

Think I'll do some spuddlin'... uh... later.

Splishin' and a Splashin'... Thank you all.. This one was inspired by one of my students.. She made up the word.. I told her that if she didn't write a poem about it - I would.. She didn't...

Nan:

Reminds me of something my four-year-old would enjoy.  I enjoyed it too.
