It’s poetry day! Each Thursday, we join Pam and her ginger kitties for Poetic Thursday. You can find them at Two Spoiled Cats.
This is our photo inspiration for today’s poem:
And here’s my poem:
Hey There, Sport
Hey there, sport, you’re looking kinda cute,
but we have to ask: what happened to your tooth?
Did you lose it in a nasty fall?
Or take one to the face while playing ball?
Was it a baby tooth, and you lost it late?
Say, just what IS the tooth fairy’s going rate?
Missing a tooth: that’s quite a shame.
But meanwhile, good luck with that marbles game.
And I decided to share a picture of my little snaggle-tooth from a few years ago.
~These Days Of Mine~
Perfect poem – quick to pick up on that missing tooth. I didn’t notice it until I started reading your poem. And your little man, I remember that look. Precious.
We all went through that stage I guess – losing a baby tooth and waiting for that “big kid” tooth to come in. Great photo of Marshall in that stage and well done on the poem!
” a few ” …. yup, we’ll go with that 😉 great poem, once again !
Nailed it again!! Love that you added a picture of Marshall.
