Poetic Thursday: “A, My Name Is Anna”

Once again, it’s Thursday and time for a little poetry with Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats.

Here’s this week’s photo inspiration:

And this is my poem:

A, My Name Is Anna

When I see this picture,  so many memories return
of days on the playground; it was there that I learned

to jump rope between classes with schoolmates and friends.
How we hated to see recess time come to an end.

All the girls are in dresses, that’s all we could wear.
No matter the weather, those little legs were just bare.

In those days before careers and housework and such,
our biggest goal was learning to double dutch.

As we jumped, we sang little songs to keep time;
they were creative and fun and didn’t have to rhyme.

“A, my name is Anna, my husband’s name is Allen.
We live in Athens, and we sell apples.”

Programming note: Sunday is a special day here in the Motor family, so watch for a rare Sunday These Days post.
