A Poem – The Princess of Dawdling
The Princess of Dawdling
The princess of dawdling shares her song with the birds,
shares her thoughts with the sky, her dreams with the dogs,
who love her in every way but words.
The princess of dawdling has long brown hair,
soft and hard to comb. She has a smile
we all wish she would wear more often.
She has many fine qualities, but as you might guess –
one fault. She dawdles. To a maddening degree.
She dawdles when she dresses, when she eats,
She dawdles about brushing her long brown hair.
What is the rush? Her hair will be there then.
She dawdles enough to fill an hour with nothing done.
Her parents agree she inherited from the other.
Her father is loosing his hair, her mother all patience.
with this almost so fine princess of dawdling.
– her dad
