My darling Great-Aunt Martha
Owned a humongous hen,
Just ONE of her glorious eggs
Could feed a family of ten!!

Just a bit of fun. Thought I would make a nonsense rhyme to go with it. My family could use eggs this size. : )

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Forgot to add that your poem reminds me of Shel Silverstein…my favorite children’s poet. I had all his poetry books and read them frequently to my three girls…I just loved him! This poem reads like one of his!

  • Ah, that makes me happy! I LOVE Shel Silverstein, I own one of his books, would love to have more!! thanks, Karen! : )
