LIfe is still a roller coaster. No time to blog or read blogs or do much of anything except try to remember how to put one foot in front of the other and get through another day. I’ll be at CSLA in Sacramento this weekend and then hoping to crash for the next week at home, on vacation, curled up on the couch with my husband, my dog, and many hours of TiVo to help me vegetate.
But Poetry Friday is a must-do.
The Alligator’s Children
The alligator is a creature
With not a single pleasing feature;
And even when it’s very small,
It is not cuddlesome at all.
With countless teeth its jaws are set.
I do not want one for a pet.
Cicely Fox Smith, 1882-1954
I’ll be at the Author Brunch on Sunday at CSLA.
Looking forward to seeing you again!
Thanks for stopping by with a poem to share. It’s really cute!
Take good care of yourself, my friend. 🙂
Thanks, Melodye. When did life get so complicated?
I have days when I’m not cuddlesome at all, either. 🙂
Thanks for the poem.
Cute. I hope your personal alligators go away some time soon.

The cow is of the bovine ilk–
One end is moo, the other milk.
Life has definitely been a roller coaster of late–love the cuddling on the couch idea. And love the poem–thanks for sharing!
Susan, I’ve been meaning to thank you for stepping up to help run this group. Not only is it well-organized, but it’s fun to be a member, with lots of good info and some interesting discussions. Long live the Kidlitosphere!
