Poetic Thursday: Storytime

Thursday means poetry here at These Days. I look forward each week to joining my friend, Pam and her sweet kitties at Two Spoiled Cats.

Here’s this week’s photo:

And here’s my poem:


Under a whispy tent with all her friends,
it’s a  little girl’s world of let’s pretend.

Every night, you’ll find them there:
puppies, kittens and teddy bears.

It’s a bedtime story everyone wants to hear;
at the sound of her voice, they all draw near.

Stars in her tent and stars in the sky,
and the bunny in the moon sings a lullaby.

Mom and Dad come in for a kiss;
they know sweet memories are made of this.

They softly say: “It’s time to turn out the light,
so you and your friends can go night-night”.

  1. Awwwww…..your poem is just plain adorable and SWEET. I just love the poetry I’ve read this morning – everyone seems to have found that image quite magical. When the poems flow so well I tell myself we chose a good photo for inspiration. That’s what makes poetry so much fun! Thanks for joining usevery week.


  2. AWWW!!! You carried me back to us reading to our girls at bedtimes – complete with the glow-in-the-dark stars on their ceiling fans. What sweet memories that were made of that time! Your poems are a highlight of my Thursday mornings. 🙂

  3. So perfectly charming a poem (and inspirational picture) that again I wondered down days of the past.
    It brought back memories of how much growing up we loved to play with a flashlight 🔦 ❤

  4. some poems are intended to take you right there, and this is another one of yours that does just that.. it’s warm under her tent, but it looks to be chilly outdoors …
