freckled fun


kids have ‘em on their noses
toads have ‘em on their toes-es

bananas get ‘em when yummy ripe
trout wear ‘em with tummy stripe

speckles of sunlight shine upon leaves
treckles of water dripping from eaves

when all’s said and done
freckles are fun!

No changing freckles and no editing this poem 🙂  It’s a quadrille with exactly 44 words for Mish’s prompt at dVerse poets pub tonight.

    “treckles of water” was especially fun.

    A nice variety of freckles! Would never have thought of those bananas. 🙂

    Freckles are as fun as you make them, and you made them fun, Lynn. So many fun freckles!

    This is, indeed, fun. It’s wonderful how there are so many freckles to observe in nature. I like the toads’ toes-es!

    I love the way this flows, especially:
    “trout wear ‘em with tummy stripe”
