Just for Fun, My Poetry

Strictly For Fun

Strictly for fun, I like to post my very short stories, poems, and kids’ books I have started but haven’t published for one reason or another. As, authors, we should always keep everything we write, good or bad, complete or just pieces of ideas. You just never know what can be developed from the things you have written down. Besides it reflects who you were at that particular time in your life.

I have a whole folder of these on my computer and have been adding them to my posts over the last several weeks in between writing on an adult novel and editing one of my Young Adult novels to be published very soon. (hint, hint) I am also working on re-publishing two other middle school books as well. Those will be historical fiction, of course, and I even have a couple of younger children books that I need illustrations to be created before we lay them out for publication.

Enjoy my short poetical story

The Princess with the Runny Nose
By L.L. Eadie

In the Kingdom of Kalamazoo,
Believe me,
I do not lie.
It is true.
There was a pretty princess,
Who had a runny nose.
No matter what she tried,
It still dripped like a hose.
Sniff!

The King shook his head.
The Queen nodded and said,
“Here, child, wipe it clear,
with my lace hankie.”
“But, Queen Mother, dear,
It’s much, much,
much too swanky.”
Sniff!

The King shook his head.
The Queen nodded and said,
“Blow!”
And sooo…
The princess blew
and blew
and blew.
She sniffed,
wrinkled her nose
and sneezed
Achoo!
Sniff!

The King shook his head.
The Queen nodded and said,
“Call the jester he’ll know what to do.”
But the juggling jester didn’t have a clue.
He said, “Stand on your head!”
And soooo,..
And with that said,
The princess did tread
on her head.
Sniff!
Until her tiny face,
turned blood red.

The King shook his head.
The Queen nodded and said,
“Nurse-maid, Sue!
Come see what you can do.”
“All you need is a dab of glue.”
Said Sue.
“This will fix her up like brand-new.”
But the pretty princess sniffed it right through.
Snnn…
Snnn…
Snnnniff!

The King shook his head.
The Queen nodded and said,
“Call the Kingdom’s doctor quick,
He’ll know the magic trick.”
“To bed.”
He said, “Now cover her up,
Like a new born pup.”
Feeling her forehead,
The doc said,
“Next, snatch a chicken from the coop,
“And make her some chicken soup.”
Sniff!

The King nodded this time instead.
The Queen agreed and fed,
The princess in bed…
the soup.
She slurped scoop,
After scoop,
After scoop.
Till her tiny stuffed-up nose.
Did disclose…
The sweet smell,
Of a royal garden rose.
Awe…
Sniff.

For My Readers

We are still looking for readers to take a few seconds and answer our quick poll about autographed copies. It is important to me because we haven’t been able to schedule any kind of book signing event and may not get to until October or November. Which a couple of us self-published writers are really wanting to do together. It will be fun to see each other in person instead of always meeting on Zoom. So, please answer, share, or even comment below.
