A poet in the making?

We waited in line for school to begin.

He followed the number-snake, twisting through the playground, hollering the numbers as he galloped towards playgroup.

“…twenty-eight, twenty-nine, THIRTY!” he shouted as he landed on the snake’s head.

“What rhymes with thirty, Bertie?” I enquired innocently.

(Can you see what I did there?)

He gave it a moment’s thought, before yelling…

… “EIGHT!”

    And won’t it be great to be able to look back on all these little captured moments.

    It will – it’s a journal of young life. (And with my Capricorn Moon I have a shocking memory, so it’s doubly useful!)
    Thank you, Susannah, for your open-hearted appreciation. πŸ™‚
