Nursery Rhymes

My husband told me to write a nursery rhyme, so I attempted two. I based my rhyming scheme and rhythm on nursery rhymes like Little Miss Muffet and Jack and Jill.

Daisy the Lion
By Candace Shultz

Daisy the lion
Just wouldn't stop crying.
She stubbed her pinky toe.
A mouse scurried by,
Bravely gave comfort a try,
And wrapped her paw in a bow.

Lily the Child
By Candace Shultz

Lily the child
Went very wild
And ran around the room.
Her mom calmed her down
With a fierce frown
Until Lily yelled, "Vroom vroom!"
