A LITTLE HUMOR FOR YOU TODAY.

My photo has nothing to do with the poem, just liked the flowers, and the poem brought me a smile.  I hope it does for you too.  



Grumpledump's Song 
by 
Shel Silverstein

Days are too long,
Sunshine's too hot,
Wind is too strong.
Clouds are too fluffy,
Grass is too green,
Ground is too dusty, 
Sheets are too clean.
Stars are too twinkly,
Moon is too high,
Water's too drippy,
Sand is too dry.
Rocks are too heavy,
Feathers too light,
Kids are too noisy,
Shoes are too tight.
Folks are too happy,
Singin' their songs.
Why can't they see it?
Everything's wrong!

  1. I think Shel Silverstein has written some really good poems. Not just for kids, but adults can learn something from them too!

  2. P.S. This poem makes me think he was talking about how some people are never happy, no matter how good things are.

  3. Smiling. We have all known one. And, dare I say it, sometimes most of us have been one.

  5. I once worked with someone who didn't have one positive streak in her body. Strangely enough, I learned things from her.

  7. I like Shel Silverstein. He wrote the famous song "A Boy Named Sue" which was made a hit by Johnny Cash.

    God bless.

    1. Maybe so but they were in an area in Colonial Williamsburg, near where all the shops were. This photo only showed a small portion of the planting area.

  16. Loved this! The best poems for children are the ones that can be enjoyed by the adults in the family too. Shel Silverstein was the master at this!

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
