So Shy....

So Shy....

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

Being the shy girl with 4 brothers......

ripping, roaring, dad's asnoring.
mom continues, still imploring.
seeking silence, blessed silence.
kids are screaming, eyes agleaming.

flipping, gripping, cats are nipping.
swimming, dipping, fish afinning.
seeking silence, blessed silence.
motors rumbling, brothers grumbling.

quiet, silent, in a corner sitting.
reading, hiding, hope for disappearing.
seeking silence, blessed silence.
whispers spoken, words unbroken.

too shy for noise, unlike those boys
afraid to speak, not a squeak
seeking silence, blessed silence.

QUIETTTT!!!!!!, please!

Conceived in humor; lyrically constructed; well done.
Clever fun!
