My wonderful lil' beastie wrote another poem, again I'm amazed by a 6yr old :)
She's so much better than me...
Half baked idea, 'spired by Dr A, but alas, I'm not feeling creative right now, so it's a flop.
Here's what I started, feel free to add, remove, re-create, and generally do a lot better than me... Origanil post, in the comments of http://facesinthewater.blogspot.com/2006/10/build-better-future-with-office.html :)
OK, right, wasn’t going to do any standard Blog type things, i.e. Memes, quizzes etc.
I was planning on keeping this space for my absolute drivel, loosely labelled, poems.
But, alas, my big mouth has bitten off a little more than it can chew.
I was helping my daughter with her spellings today, and the cunning lil’ minx sidetracked me onto a discussion about why, how, what I write, kids do that you know, ask distracting questions when they really don’t want to do what they’re being asked to do, (sneaky moo wrote all the words down before I asked them too, so I guess she’ll pass today’s spelling test), anyway, at some point, she challenged me to use her spelling book words to write a poem with, no problem says I…
Then she throws in the condition that I only use those words, not add any others… O.k. says I, remembering last year, with lots of easy to use words like ‘and’ and ‘if’ etc….
Well, now I’m stumped, it’s a fresh year, and here are the words…
BACK SUCK NECK LOCK STICK
SING BRING RING STING THING
POND MEND PANDA HAND END
THINK BANK CHUNK SANK DONKEY
If anyone passing by can use ALL the words, and make a nearly sensible poem….well, you’re a freckling genius!
