I'm a pretty lucky kid,
'cause it rained last night.
The thunder and lightning
was quite a sight.

Next morning dog and I
went outside to play.
I never played harder
than I did that day.

We found every puddle
we could find.
Just sat right in
on our behind.

We made great mud pies
and forts with moats.
And took mud bathes
'clean' up to our throats.

Dog got stuck
and I pulled him out.
Told him this was what
fun was all about.

The sun was going down,
getting late in the day.
Dog and I decided we'd better
be on our way.

Told Dog we're coming back
tomorrow for more.
And started to go
into our front door.

Mom took one look at us
and her jaw hit the floor.
Told me to turn around
and go to the back door.

There on the porch was mom,
and a tub of water.
I didn't know, of the two,
who was the hotter.

She just shook her head,
and told me to jump in.
Said I could start by washing
off that silly grin.

Mom scrubbed me hard,
said, 'Boy you're a mess'.
Added something about clean
and Godliness.

After supper, mom said,
'Off with you upstairs.
And don't forget to say
your bedtime prayers'.

Thanked God for mom, dad,
Dog and my toys.
And especially making puddles
for Dirty Little Boys.

Yes Rusty~ "Puddles and Dirty Little Boys" can be fun...
for grown women too! LOL!
This reminds me of a white water rafting trip I took...4 days at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, we stopped for lunch one day, where the Big Colorado meets the Little Colorado...the rain from the night before made the little river look so muddy coming down from the mountains...Another girl on the trip and I stood in the Little Colorado and pasted ourselves from head to toe with the thickest mud I ever did see...we baked in the sun of 110 took all of 5 minutes to harden...and boy did it do wonders for my complexion! HA!
great poem to go along with my great memories!
Love and Peace~

Awww, this is such a cute poem -- the ending is precious, Rusty-friend. A twist, but a different type of twist. Very endearing.

This should be on a hallmark card Rusty! You caught the spirit of the whole scene perfectly. Having raised two boys I'm familiar with it;-) Great poem!
