Y is for Yesterday

In honor of days gone by when children's literature and simple poetry were  part of every single day. Light and easy, today, folks, light and easy.


I found my box of rubber bands.
I’d lost them yesterday.
I’d moved them from a place I thought
I’d like for them to stay.

I found my missing bumbershoot.
My hair got wet with rain.
The sun came out, my hair was dry,
Before ‘twas found again.

I found my missing batteries,
My radio had died.
I missed the ballgame broadcast time
I sat right down and cried.

I found my other shoe. Oh boy,
My toes got cold without.
Just wearing socks and socks and socks
and socks to Hop about.

I found my keys, oh yes I did.
I feel so sheepish though.
I left them in the car you see,
And now poor car won’t go.

I found my brand new day today.
I thought it was all gone.
Huzzah! A new one everyday
Arising with the dawn.

With love,

Memories. Must make new ones.
I don't write enough poetry and often they're a bit maudlin. Hmm.. Thanks, you've got me thinking again!

I love these sorts if simple poems. Something innocent about them.

So many truths are held in this, not quite that simple, but breathlessly light and easy poem.

A brand new day everyday, who could ask for anything more?

Just found your blog from A to Z. Love all the artwork, and we have the same word for the day.

I'll come back when I have more time to catch up and read. Good luck with Z!
