Poetry

Original children’s poem: “Special”

There once was a child

with plain brown eyes.

She had plain mousy hair

and everyone passed her by.

Her parents were busy with work everyday

her sister was older and didn’t want to play.

Her teachers ignored her–

she wished she knew what to do!

She didn’t feel special

or witty

or new.

But one day the child

heard a song on the radio.

Her heart quaked

and she was set all aflutter,

her vocal chords were warmed

like wet melted butter.

Then she opened her mouth and started to sing.

The whole world paused,

people stopped in the streets,

to listen to this girl

and the song with it’s beats.

***

Happy reading!
