A Children's Poem....

Rating: 5.0


Tjabee, the music is on
children, let's go now
to Grandma's house
it's always fluffy there
never a play of cat and mouse

do you remember?
Grandma still has a Fiat "weg-luis"car
Oh well, come on, hurry up, it's not that far
we are going to pick up Grandma and up to the top
with the Fiat 500 car, it's not that far
and the snow is fresh
and we'll play splish-splash

children watch Grandma's course
we are not controlling her, of course
let her go
that's the best thing about her existence I know

Tjabee, the music is on
children, let's go now
on to the top

it's always up there plop-plop
the snow is becoming watery over there
you have to wear under your shoes a pair of rubber soles
or just snow boots sans smallest holes
with the Booty Bowl soles

Poet's Note: Fiat 500 is the smallest car type of the FIAT industry in Italy, in the Netherlands it's called a "weg-luis".(a street lice)
Booty Bowl is a trending name in

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Fun with Grandma during wintersport in Tignes le Lac, South of France
Cozy warmest place with cold winds on the shadow side.
This wintersport town lies upon 2100 meters high.
In front of our hotel a magnifique snowy panorama, a loveliest view.

The streets in this town are cleaned from snow and other frozen spots every day. truly very important for the ones who want to walk to the mountain. There is always much sun everyday, so the top of the sunny mountainside is oft slippery. Better walk on the shadow-side. Of course it's not cold during the day. That's why it is called a Wintersport place/area.

We've had much fun and sun, you can hear in this song.
You can sing this Children's Song. Create the tune.

Thank you so much for reading and for your comments.

Created with much love and care,

Grandma still has a Fiat " weg-luis" car. This is very well. Grandmother is always clever and affectionate. We've had much fun and sun, you can hear in this song. Grandmother is ever nice. Children are ever happy with grand mother. This children's song is excellent song definitely. An amazing poem is very brilliantly penned.10
