A Poem to Start the Year

Tired old dog, plodding along
Sing me a song, sing me a song

Songs are for cats, rainbows and rats
Toss up your hats, toss up your hats

The song starts like this, a wink and kiss
Signs hard to miss, signs hard to miss

Dance with a tree, lovely and free
What do you see? What do you see?

A bird with a brace and a miserable face
Satin and lace, satin and lace

For the sake of a friend, fortune to lend
How does it end? How does it end? 

With a hug and a wave, humor to save
Forever be brave, forever be brave

This silly, nonsensical creature sprung from the first two lines, though I had to drag out the rest of it, so “sprung” is perhaps too strong a word. It’s not perfect (there are several words that aren’t the exact fit) but I had fun making it. In any case, I plan on doing something creative every day of the year. Whether or not these creations will show up on this blog depends on their content and state of completion. Cheers to lofty goals!
