IF: poem

Spread the love

Illustrationfriday.com poses the challenge word of “poem” this week.

What have we here, laddie? Mysterious scribblings? A secret code? No! Poems, no less! Poems, everybody!

When I was very young, I had a huge book of poetry. It contained famous poems like Paul Revere’s Ride and Hiawatha and Casey at the Bat. It also had many poems by Ogden Nash, a great American poet. Nash wrote humorous poems filled with puns. He is probably most famous for “Reflections On Ice-Breaking“. But my favorite Ogden Nash poem is “The Panther
The panther is like a leopard
Except it hasn’t been peppered
Should you behold a panther’s crouch
Prepare to say ouch
Better yet, if called by a panther
Don’t anther.

Comments? I know you have them…
