My Doggerel Poem for Susanna’s Valen-tiny Contest 2016

HI Friends! Click here and see the fun.

Happiness spreads with you!My Doggerel Poem for Susanna’s Valentiny Contest 2016!

No PPBF? How can that be?

I rely on Perfect Picture Book Friday to sustain me.

Must I instead write a diddle

A piddle

A poo?

For the contesteroo?

Who wrote the rules?

Who says I say.

Why it’s harebrained Susanna Leonard Hill who says.

So here is my Valentiny contest story submission.

Though I must say I am perplexed, am grumpy and irritable.

And curmudgeony.

To write for Contest Valentiny.

But here I am at 136 words. Rules say below 214. Nothing about it being exact.

Must be for children.

 Kids! Can you relate?

Chime in before it is too late.

Do you like, it hate it, or care?

This is my submission. And I’m sticking with it.

The end.

I have two picture books out by eTp, Annie's Special Day and Edmund Pickle Chin which I wrote with my friend, Susan April Elwood in Georgia where she has Evermay Rescue Farm, Edmund's home. I live with my brilliant husband in rural Loudoun County, Virginia, an hour away from DC, with too many cats and a wood stove.
