Billie Jo

A Poem

By Mother CombsPublished 8 days ago 1 min read

Billie Jo

Likes to frolic really slow

Through the garden

Tiptoeing on toes of ten

So that she doesn’t crush the flowers

That grows after the spring showers


Wearing a crown of posies

All while she moseys

She picks roses

Then, in a vase, she sets them in poses

Until she is happy

I know, this poem is sappy


It’s crazy

But her favorite is a daisy

Pink, red, or white

They are just right

For making chains

And sometimes airplanes


Billie Jo is a dinosaur

And once, she rode in a flying saucer

To the moon

What a boon!

She was glad to go home

For it was weird under that glass dome


Her mother, a beacon of warmth, likes to bake

Cookies or cake

There’s always a treat

For one to eat

When you visit

And at the table, you sit


Wearing her flowery skirt

She likes to dance and flirt

When she’s out

And running about

Doing this or that

Or petting her kitty-cat


Billie Jo is a Brontasaurus

Her mind is like a Thesaurus.

She knows her words

And likes to sing her chords

All while writing her songs

And listening for the meal gongs


She’s a gentle soul

Who is happy with her role

Of being a friend

Til the very end

Billie Jo maybe slow

But she’s always on the go

    Bronto is my next favorite dino to T-REX. I love the bad guys, always siding with the jerks.. But Bronto seems to be having a wonderful time here. So cool.
