A Poem by Judy Ponceby

For Creative Poetry

The inventive minds of boys
make their imaginations
come to life.

Enthralling battles with
goblins and dragons,
sorcerers and monsters,
carried out in finest silver armor.

Bewitching musings on
horrid witches
and maidens in turmoil.

Legions of hellions marching leagues
through giant vermin-infested
swamps and caverns the size of

All of these epic tales
played out in the backyard,
on bicycles,
with sticks and garbage can lids,
with towels for capes,
and Spot the dog as the faithful
companion on all manner of adventure.

These are the means to greatness
for every boy and his dog.

this is fantastic and I feel that it truly captures the heart and soul of little boys... I have had 4 and I have seen those epic tales played out in my backyard. The inclusion of Spot the dog is very touching and made me reminiscent of my youngest boy and his new best friend, Annabelle, who i am sure will be a faithful companion on many such adventures!
