My Pen Won't Write


(silly, funny children's poem)


My pen won't write
And there's no light
I scratch it with all my might
But still it doesn't write!

I got me some white
Paper tonight
So I can write
But my pen doesn't write!

What a night!
This is my plight!
Pen! Pen! Just write
And bring me light!

My pen won't write
In the dark or in the light
And I can't see right
'Cause now is the night!

I scratch it with all my might
On top of my paper white
I'll try and I'll try it right
Until my pen again writes!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
