Ode to Writers

Today, I set myself a goal.
I'll craft the words that will show.
I created a story that's engaging and fun.
You'll enjoy the characters, every single one.
I'll write about a funny new tale.
It stars a lovable talking whale.
I'll add in a silly white goose.
And I'll write like I'm Dr. Seuss.
But suddenly, I have bad luck.
My mind goes blank and I'm stuck.
Now I'm in a state of shock.
I got a case of writer's block.
No problem, I'm gonna still write.
I won't stop until I got it right.
I'll use words that will dazzle their mind.
And put the main character in a bind.
Now it's over, my story is complete.
I'll consider this a huge feat.
I'm finally finished and I feel great.
And not once did I procrastinate.

Let's Exercise

So are you ready to get fit?
Do you have the time to commit?
Exercise is easy, it can be done.
It's a work out and it's really fun.
If you stumble now and then.
Just get back up and start again.
Choose one exercise that suits you.
There is so much that you can do.
Aerobics, ballet and dance too.
Even a treadmill to name a few.
Go for a jog or get on a bike.
Play some tennis or go on a hike.
You don't have to run a race.
You can go at your own pace.
Stretch a little bit, followed by a swim.
You can use weights to stay trim.
Head to the gym and kick up your feet.
You can do it with rhythm and beat.
They tell you it's healthy and fun.
Whether you walk, skip or run.
You can exercise an hour each day.
Bring along a friend and start today.
No more excuses, it's time to commit.
Set yourself a goal and just do it.

Hey Little Child

Hey, little child, come take a look.
I just bought you a picture book.
And if that book is something you don't like.
Then, I'm gonna buy you a brand new bike.
And if that bike has a dent or flat.
Then, I'm gonna buy you a new hat.
And if that hat makes you look funny.
Then, I'm gonna buy you a little bunny.
And if that bunny doesn't want to eat.
Then, I'm gonna buy shoes for your feet.
And if the shoes is tattered or torn.
Then, I'm gonna buy you a musical horn.
And if the horn is cracked or broke.
Then, I'm gonna buy you a colorful cloak.
And if that cloak is ever too small.
Then, it's your turn to buy anything at all.

The Best Thing

Buddy, Cathy, Pete and Wally joined Henry
 at his house to prepare for a special party.
They put up decorations, hung up balloons, 
and brought out the cake and soda.
They gathered at Henry's house 
to celebrate the new year.
Henry made a special toast
to the success of their blog.
"I got a question," Henry announced.
"Do you know what the best thing about our blog is?"
"It's the book reviews," Buddy exclaimed.
"Yes, book reviews are great," Henry agreed.
"But that is not the best thing."
"It's the drawings the children send," Cathy proclaimed.
'The drawings are all masterpiece," Henry agreed.
"But that is not the best thing."
"It's all the jokes we post," Pete declared.
"The jokes are funny," Henry agreed.
"But that is not the best thing."
"It's the poetry we post," Wally replied.
"The poems are good," Henry agreed.
"But that is not the best thing."
Buddy, Cathy, Pete and Wally gathered around Henry.
"Then, what is the best thing?" they asked him.
"It's the viewers!" Henry answered.
"It's all the people who check our blog."
