Writing 201 Poetry: Day 10: Pleasure, Sonnet, Apostrophe

Is this a carousel horse before me?
May we ride it mother please?
Oh how I wish that they rode free.
This I find to be just a tease.

What is his name my dear kind sir?
What? You want me to guess his name?
I was thinking Frankincense or Myrrh
Or maybe something much more tame.

Sir come on let us ride.
The night is drawing near.
My little brother at my side

Or maybe at my rear.
Not now mother please wait.
We’ll meet you at the gate.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    You recreate creatively the thinking of a child. I wish the horses were free. While we’re going ’round, it’s hard to tell if my brother is before me or behind. And a child’s insistence is sensibly crafted here, too. Thank you!
