All Dressed-up

All Dressed-up

©2011 by Mollie Pearce McKibbon

I took time at dressing.

My clothes were all brand new

And I took extra time

To shine my high-heeled shoes.

With hair carefully coiffed

And my eyelashes a-curl,

I thought, there’ll be no doubt

That I’m a modern girl.

************************

My pink nail polish matched

The latest springtime theme.

My lipstick was shiny

And my eye shadow a-sheen.

I’d sprayed and I’d powdered

From my head to my feet.

In my mind was no doubt-

The picture was complete.

Upon the bedroom wall,

I knew I was ready

For every protocol.

 

Wearing my sweetest smile,

I stepped out my front door

To a loud clap of thunder

And an instant rain downpour!

Spring is Around the Corner?

Here is another bit of poetry I once wrote for spring.

An Ode to the Breeze

©2011 Mollie Pearce McKibbon

There’s nothing more delightful

Than a fresh spring breeze

As it ruffles through my tresses

And tickles cross my knees.

**************

Oh my, the wind is blowing

The branches of the trees

And it’s spreading lots of pollen

Causing me to sneeze.

                       ***************

The wind has started howling,

Blowing hats and  scarves to sea.

It’s taken my umbrella

But it won’t get me!                                                   very_windy-clipart
