Elena Plotkin Poems

I grew up with a bunch of others,
Just me with my sisters and brothers.
When I was younger, I was green and tough,
But as I grew older, I discovered life could be rough.

A kiss on the forehead
or one on the cheek
A kiss from your mother
while you are asleep.

They used to call me twinkle toes,
And I had my fill of admirers and beaus.
I was quite a dancer of ballet,
My pirouette and my grand plié

The world was facing a catastrophic end,
The leaders had stopped playing pretend.
This wasn’t just a matter of grave urgency.
This was a world-wide emergency.

Welcome to my perfume parlour.
Have some scents they’re only a dollar.
There is no charge to take a good sniff,
So, please linger long enough to get a whiff.

I want to be the man in the relationship,
I am sure you can under-stand.
I want to be the girl,
that promises you the world,


Did you ever think, Jack sold a cow for some bean
simply because deep down he was a closet Vegan?
And what of our sweet, innocent Little Bo Peep,
How hard was it really, for her to lose those sheep?

I tell youth now,
as I was once told.
'You're too young to know,
what life beholds.

Our children see the road ahead differently from us.

For them, it's an adventure and their real big chance.

Sit a while and have a cup of tea,
From whence have you come? What did you see?
Tell me something that will interest me.
Are you hungry? Have you had any dinner?

Not all fathers will get a chance to celebrate Father's Day.
Some are too quick to run while others are quicker to stay.
Some are prone to neglect while others can't help but care.
Some are always absent while others find ways to be there.

You need to be at an event and you have nothing to wear,
And guess who'll lend you anything short of their underwear.
You've lost your job and can't seem to get off unemployment,
And guess who's leading the search for your next appointment.

Your eyes hunger for money,
Hoping some would magically appear.
Your words flow like honey,
Trickling sweetly down my ear.

My dreams for you are one of many,
You are after all my grandbaby!
One of my happiest days on this earth,
was the day your mother gave you birth.

Time is a runner who runs every race.
But he never runs in just one place.

You can’t hide from him; he’s everywhere.


Time is a promise that can't be kept.
The sun does not rise nor does it set.
Dreams are the lies we conjure up in bed.
Tomorrow is supplanted by today instead.

Now if you knew me well you would know,
I would watch anything but a fashion show.
I am definitely not at all into Haute Couture,
I never could understand the great allure.


How can I explain,
the sunshine that has rain,
the clouds that never disappear,
even when you are near.

Tiger, Tiger, up a tree.
Tiger, Tiger come to me.
Tiger, Tiger locked in a cage.
Tiger, Tiger placed in a rage.

Do not fear old age or death,
Instead fear doctors with cold hands and bad breath.
Do not fear liver spots, wrinkles, and white hair,
Instead fear an impatient and resourceful heir.

Elena Plotkin Biography

I like to write poems and sometimes songs about the funny moments in our lives, the thoughts we have rattling around in our brain, the troubles we all share, the issues we carry with us everywhere, the people we surround ourselves with, and the hopes and dreams that make it easier to go on and live. I like to write poems and sometimes songs that make people laugh, smile knowingly, and think. And I hope my readers enjoy what I write and come back for more.)

The Best Poem Of Elena Plotkin


I grew up with a bunch of others,
Just me with my sisters and brothers.
When I was younger, I was green and tough,
But as I grew older, I discovered life could be rough.
I changed and grew softer, some called me yellow.
But I was no coward, just a very cautious fellow.
Because where I come from you never know the day,
That your whole family gets eaten or just carted away.
