She's a most peculiar child

i heard my mother once say

a half of piece of toast please

a half a glass of milk...if i may

not a crumb less...not a drop more

this is her own peculiar way

she doesn't look well in ruffles

she prefers her brothers jeans

ugly brown shoes with laces

tied in a most peculiar way

her hair is the color of field corn

plain as her unruffled frocks

she likes it slicked and tied back

looks quite odd with curly locks

she eats with a pickle fork

she bathes in her socks

no silly dolls with dresses

she likes collecting rocks

I was a surprised to discover

her words were spoken of me

for i never felt peculiar

simply happy to be me

Each child is so unique and precious. I was a tomboy myself, although rheumatic fever cramped my style for awhile.
Moms don't always realize what their younguns are hearing and taking to heart.
You sound like a cool kid to me.

A most delightful write...about perception. Well done!

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 5/17/2010
This is a cute, lively little poem. The child sounds like a wonderful little tomboy.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 5/17/2010
Some mothers should have told that to their offspring...even if they didn't feel it was true.
