Yet another poem...:P This one's cute, though; it's about a little girl, begging her babysitter to tell her a story.

Tell Me A Story

"Oh, tell me a story of times long ago
Of knights wearing armor, with steeds white as snow
Of dragons with bright scales and teeth long as knives
Of pirates and soldiers that fought for their lives

"And please don't forget all the faeries and things;
Of rubbing a lamp, and the luck that it brings.
Of bright, golden palaces, castles with moats;
And even the villain, who foolishly gloats.

"Oh, tell me of princes, I ask you, my friend
and don't disappoint with a 'well, that's the end'
Just tell me the story that I long to hear
A great tale of courage, of love and of fear

Don't tell me it's bed-time, I really do know
But I'd like a story before I must go."
The child begged, and she begged, but shockingly then
she fell fast asleep as I went to begin!

Hehe. I used to do that--beg for a story and then fall asleep in the middle. Of course, it’s been years...now I make up my own stories 2 anywho, I like this poem too. You have a very good sense of rhythm and rhyme scheme.

:-) Melissa marie canaway replies: "heh. Yeah, I babysit, so the ending pretty much just stemmed from that.. And thanks..writing poetry is something I enjoy..writing poetry that actually sounds okay is a pain, lol."
