My granddaughter Zariah asked me to write a crazy, funny story for her and her siblings and this is the story I wrote in poetic form. I am currently awaiting the art work pending publishing in book form. Sharing this with Triond Readers. Enjoy.
Nana’s Wacky Farm
By Jen Donier @ May 14, 2003
For ZARIAH my granddaughter
Dad said tonight will be an eclipse of the moon;
Mom said we are going on a trip real soon.
We watched that night as the moonlight went out,
Mom told us while watching, what our trip was about.
Tamzi and I danced arm in arm for.
we were going to Nana’s farm.
Drifting to sleep in my bed, the moonlight,
shone in my window, overhead
At breakfast next morning dad said;
better hustle, so we ate breakfast in a bustle
We rode for miles into the country,
Tamzi and I were full of glee.
There ahead sat Nana’s house and barn
It was always fun at Nana’s farm.
I began to notice things very strange
Nana’s farm WAS NOT the SAME!
I heard the cat bark, Bow, wow, wow,
And the dog was purring and saying Meow.
Nana’s in the kitchen a pitchfork in her hand,
A whiskery beard covered her chin!!
Go out to the barn, she said with a grin;
Help with the milking and bring the eggs in.
Papa was in the barn wearing and apron,
and holding a frying pan.
He said come on Zariah and give me a hand.
We have to milk the chickens and;
gather eggs from the cows.
Toss the kittens some hay from the mow,
And then go hitch the pig up to the plow.
Outside a fat toad was scratchin’ a flea;
The peacock and goose were sipping cups of tea.
A big white gander ran around the race course.
Tamzi began milking, Charlie the horse!
Six pigs in the meadow were eating clover;
Turkeys were playing fetch with Rover.
Bossy the cow began to cackle and laid an egg,
Big Buck the ram was asleep in Nana’s bed!
Chase had a saddle on one of the sheep;
Hershey the goat was driving Nana’s jeep.
The postman came riding up on a snail;
Squeaking like a mouse, he said; “here’s your mail”.
Birds were popping out of the ground,
Worms were flying around and around.
Uncle Dan was in the yard shearing the horse;
A big green turtle rode a motorcycle around the
The bull was jumping rope with Alysha my cousin;
And honeybees were putting a cake in the oven.
I saw five ducks driving papa’s truck;
All the kittens began to cackle and cluck.
The flowers in the garden waved and sang;
Two frogs wearing pajamas looked very Strange!
I looked at Tamzi and she looked at me,
I was her and she was me.
What a fright, I woke with a SCREAM!
To find I was only having a terrible dream.
