Oh my! It’s past my bedtime…but I wanted to get my Day 17 poem up! Rena Traxel is hosting our exciting A to Z Poetry Challenge Day, and today Q for Query. She encouraged us to think about submitting some of our poems. I think that scared me so bad that I avoided writing my challenge poem until now! Many thanks to Ishta Mercurio-Wentworth for the great information on querying that she shared today on Rena’s blog. Today we could write a poem of our choosing. So here is mine.
A Cow, A Moon, and A Suspicion
Hey! diddle, diddle, The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
I’m willing to bet that a record was set,
And she’ll be getting her trophy real soon.
She’s taken up discus and hurdle and sprints,
She long jumps and she triple jumps, too.
I know it sounds strange, but I’m telling you folks
There’s nothing ol’ Bess will not do.
I cannot explain where she got her mad skills,
Most bovine don’t even LIKE track.
But, I’ve come to suspect that Bess stayed in space
And “they” sent a lunar cow back!
