Happy Birthday Patti!

6 Oct


pat-a-cake pat-a-cake camping gal
take me a-trekking as fast as you can

climb up a mountain, live in a tent
write all about where you were and you went

chuck in a baby gap 15 years long
a teenage girl runner, tall-limbed and strong

throw in a pic of a mad man’s part-y
then follow instructions: sit down and read me

Patti writes a lovely, gentle blog so I have written her a lovely, gentle poem to match.
What she actually envisioned this post would be was something with small circles of ground meat involved, therefore, I have made a point of not calling her a hamburger.  
Have a wonderful day, Patti!
If you would like a nonsense poem on your birthday, leave the date in the comments.

    That was so nice! I like how you slipped in calling her a hamburger without calling her a hamburger. 🙂

    Oh, Tilly! Thank you, thank you, thank you for my poem! I love it – and thanks for not comparing me to a hamburger – now where are my maltesers? 🙂

    “sit down and read me” – I don’t want to see any it’s-all-about-me lines like this in my poem for next Saturday

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
