Monday's Child

The Beach

With eyes wide open
Standing on the beach
Waves trickling along the sand
Just out of reach.

Taking one step forward
Then another one
Running back so quicky
Beginning to have fun.

Shoes and socks are off now
Sand between the toes
Venturing a little closer
Confidence grows.

One more step closer
Foam tickles the skin
Just one last step
and finally in.

Kicking up heels
Splashing water everywhere
Jumping and squeeling
Breathing in sea air.

Monday's Chid

Monday is my dress-up day,
Today I am a vet.
I donned my hat and apron
and began to mend my pet.

You see,
He walked on something prickly
He began to wimper and cry
I knew I had to fix him
"I'll help you" I said with a sigh.

"You are my bestest friend,
I know just what to do.
I'll wrap it in this white bandage
and give you a big hug too."

"More supplies will be needed,"
I said importantly on the phone.
"But by tomorrow you will be well,
and in the garden you will roam."

"But be careful of the prickles
and watch where you put your toes.
For tomorrow I'll be a fireman...
I'll be busy with the hose."

This is my first try...lol....
it's fun i must say...
