More Nursery Rhymes

Today is Day 22 of National Poetry Month, and I'm writing more nursery rhymes! NaPoWriMo's prompt for today is to write a nursery rhyme or a poem for children. My daughter is my inspiration for today's poems. The rhythm and rhyming for my first poem is based on Little Miss Muffet (I do like that nursery rhyme.) whereas my second poem follows the rhythm and rhyming scheme of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear.


Little Miss Lily
By Candace Shultz

Little Miss Lily
Was feeling quite silly,
So she got out her color green.
She colored her ball.
Then she colored the wall
Until no white could even be seen.

Marshmallows, Marshmallows
By Candace Shultz

Marshmallows, marshmallows
In a cup!
Marshmallows, marshmallows,
Eat them up!
Marshmallows, marshmallows,
I see a peep!
Marshmallows, marshmallows,
Cheep, cheep, cheep!

Marshmallows, marshmallows,
Sweet and yummy!
Marshmallows, marshmallows
In my tummy!
Marshmallows, marshmallows,
I love so much!
Marshmallows, marshmallows,
Mine! Don't touch!
