Poem of the Day

3 Comments

Before you read today’s poem, here’s a change of website address if you want to purchase your copy of Let in the Stars (reviewed in yesterday’s post): it’s www.mcbf.org.uk/books

 

Pearl

Pearl was a girl

A pearly girl

But not a girly girl

Not a softly softly

Sssssshhhhhh girl

Not a tiptoe

Through the tulips girl

 

Pearl was a girl

A pearly girl

But not a girly girl

Not a frills and frippery

Flowery girl

Not a powder puff

Perfume pom pom girl

 

Pearl was a girl

A pearly girl

But not a girly girl

Not a dainty delicate

Dew drop girl

Not a lavender lacy

Look at me me me girl

 

But a pearl. A pearl of a girl.
