(not) just for kicks

A quadrille muddle at dVerse Poets pub this week…


it’s chores time on our family farm
calves gathered in a huddle
to vaccinate from microbe harm
we chase them, catch ‘n cuddle

sometimes the work goes like a charm
sometimes the herd’s befuddled
calves vs. farmers by the barn
in an unlucky, mucky muddle!

    Waaaaay too much fun! LOVE this, lynn! Especially:
    “we chase them, catch ‘n cuddle”
    So many fun sounds and rhymes in this!

    awww, no one likes to get their shots. great job rhyming “uddle”. I love how you did that with humor. My favorite though is “unlucky mucky muddle” because I can picture slipping and sliding in ….

    Sweet, couldn’t help but smile, that calf went straight to my heart, I do miss the farm.
    Happy days writing.

    The herd’s befuddlement may make the chores interesting.
