Granddaughter Kayla's Question - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Kayla asked a very good question
“Gramps, “How is a poem written? ”
Answering Kayla, I think I should mention
It helps to be rhymingly smitten

Think of a word, any old word
And think of another that rhymes
A rhyming word could be a small bird
In a clock that cuckoos in time

Try choosing a topic that you know well
Like loving your mommy and dad
Write with words that you easily spell
And you’ll find of your poem, you’ll be glad

Kayla, creating a poem can be lots of fun
Like playing the piano or dancing
Not easy at first, but once you’ve begun
You’ll find you’ll be rhymingly prancing
