Nursery Rhymes

Holy Moley lived underground,
and he had faith in above.
So his thoughts did resound
that life was guided by love.

* * *

Nowy Cowy was very zen.
Live in the moment did he.
The eight-fold path he walked
and sometimes rested beneath a tree.

These two short poems, posted for Monday, were written in response to a prompt at NaPoWriMo to write a nursery rhyme.


  1. Good nursery rhyme fare.

  2. Well done, Mr. Walker. I bet your students will enjoy these!

  3. Viv, thank you.

    SweetTalkingGuy, glad you liked "Holy Moley".

    Mary, thanks. As a treat after our standardized testing, I plan on sharing some that I've written so far this month. If I did it now in the midst of testing, they'd be too distracted.

  4. Good job with this prompt. I liked the second one best. I'm all about the zzen and resting under the tree. ;)

  5. Love 'em Mr. Walker.


  6. Gloria and Pamela, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Your kind words are appreciated.

    I like 'Nowy Cowy' for a name.

  8. Tilly, it was serendipity. One of my sons wanted to watch Chicken Little on DVD and I was hearing all these names: Foxy Loxy, Loosey Goosey, etc. and it wasn't hard to find some inspiration.

  9. Neat nursery rhymes. I like both Holy Moley and Nowy Cowy. There's a lesson in both.

  10. Spirited and playful. Is that redundant? hmmm...

  11. Judy, thank you. I'm glad you liked them both. I think they complement each other.

    Brenda, thank you. There's not much better than spirited playfulness or a person with a playful spirit. If that's redundant, I'm okay with it.

  12. Mad Kane, thanks for stopping by. I'm going to have to try my hand at limericks.
