Creatures On The Lawn - Poem by Marilyn Lott

It started as a very peasant trip
Delicious food, wonderful sites
But at the end of the day we needed
A place in which to spend the night

Next morning we had a leisure breakfast
One that was just pure bliss
It was a great place for us to stay
A vacation spot we would truly miss

Then out on the lawn where we’d slept
I ventured out before saying goodbye
There were the strangest creatures there
That instantly caught my darting eye

What in the world were they?
Could they be creatures from outer space?
What kind of dwelling had I been sleeping?
What a strange but captivating place

They were made of medal of some sort
One was like a dinosaur, it’s true
But the other things, well I wonder
How would you feel if they looked at you?

There is one thing I certainly know, folks
If I had seen them before time for bed
I don’t know how well I would have slept
I’d probably have stared at the ceiling instead!
