Poetic Thursday: Hayride

Thursday means poetry with Pam and her boys, Teddy and Angel Sammy, at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is our photo inspiration this week:

And here is my poem:


It’s a perfect day to go for a hayride;
we’ll have so much fun on our knees side by side.

We’ll laugh as the tractor goes ‘putt,putt, putt’,
and bounces us along over all the ruts.

Mom and dad laughing and taking pics
of this fun day we’re having ‘out here in the sticks’.

The pumpkin patch is where we’re bound.
Once the tractor stops, we’ll all jump down.

When we get there, we’ll run and play,
and choose the best pumpkin at the end of the day.

Back in the car, we’ll all take naps,
with our pumpkins held tightly in our laps.

~These Days Of Mine~

  2. Great job! This photo sure evokes some memories. There are some super poems out there today from this photo so I know you and I aren’t the only ones who thought about the FUN of riding behind a tractor on a sunny day!


  3. What a fun day you’ve shared! Lots of memories of riding on the tractor with my Dad.

  4. a full trip all in one poem … even more than that – with the anticipation in the first stanza .. it’s excitement before the adventure .. & the last stanza is knowing that the memories of the adventure will be good !
