2012 Song of Light

I fly, I sing;
I pollinate things.

I zoom, I tweet;
the sky cushions my feet.

I waddle, I quack;
a river flows off my back.

I run, I bark;
I squirrel chase in the park.

I leap, I meow;
I bat feathers and how.

I pounce, I roar;
I jungle run and more.

We laugh, we cry.
We live, we die.
Loving creatures are we
Helping the world to see—the light.

    Very fun – with a great last line to really bring the point home!

    • Vera 10:13 AM 08/1/2012

      Thanks, Gloria. Nice to end the ditty—with a bang.

    Sweet! If you found a good illustrator, it could make a lovely book for young children. I’m not sure about introducing the concept of “we die” for that age, though (which is a purely personal viewpoint, of course.) Not being a poet, however, I can’t offer any suggestions. :)

    Thanks, Heather. For me, death is the completion of life, and it’s not something that needs to be hidden from anyone—including little kids. In other parts of the globe (meaning, not North America), it’s standard fare early on in “the curriculum of life.” Cheers, Vera

    I like it, Vera. I”m drawing a direct parallel to humans i.e. we’re all so unique, having different strengths and purpose, eventually dying but not before having opportunities to impact the world.

    • vera 01:56 PM 09/1/2012

      And that’s what poetry is all about, Clarence. Interpretation—and I most decidedly love yours!

    My children enjoyed this. It took me ten minutes to read it to them because with every verb, they just had to quack, bark and roar. Fun stuff…more please

    • Vera 08:43 PM 27/1/2012

      So nice to hear, Michael. I look forward to writing more children’s poetry.
