Wier & Winter: I am a child
There are a lot of poems out there that I like to go back to, time and again. In the interest of sharing, I thought it might be a nice project this month, to post some of them. Here are two, linked, a bit, by theme.
Princess Mimi Romanoff
Child grade, your child, child of the month,
USDA child, the child is yours, you have no child,
Child cuts, multiple child, child, the remark is child,
Menu child, child of several levels, child of beverages,
Child of desserts, child of standard or exclusive service,
It’s a matter of child, no child, a child between a rock
And a hard place, a child between the lesser of two evils,
Child real estate, child seating, child of the night, child of
Discerning, child of window or aisle, a child of immense
Consequence, a conscious child, axiom of child, child teas,
Current child, editor’s child, child function, child deals,
It is a child you will have to make, a child you will have to
Live with, a child you would prefer to defer, child of options,
Child of routes, child of levels of service, child of many,
Child of very few, child of lower or upper, child functions,
A good child, a poor child, the only child, another child,
No other child, dealer’s child, driver’s child, last child,
A great child, child of opting out, child office, that child.
Have you ever been on a steam train ride?
I love trains!
That is why today is a special day for me.
The railroad yard is huge!
The first thing I do is meet the engineer.
Steam makes the steam train go!
Shoveling coal is hard work!
“W” stands for whistle.
WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOO, WOOOOOOOO!
The train is coming!
The man in the blue uniform is conductor Bill.
CHUGGA, CHUGGA, CHUGGA, CHUGGA . . .
I can see sheep!
DING, DING, DING, DING, DING, DING.
WHAT A GREAT DAY!
