A Child’s Disappointment

Written for:  April 2021 PAD - Day 13
"Write a Lucky and/or Unlucky poem."

Once there was a children's show hosted by
Sonny Fox.  Various schools were invited
to take part in the show.  Now it was our
turn.  Oh, the excitement!

The day before our debut, I came down with
a serious case of scarlet fever.  I watched
my class on television, and cried.

     chaos at feeder
     all hummingbird slots are filled
     one emerald bird hovers

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. So sorry about your disappointment. I remember Sonny Fox so very well from ‘Wonderama’. He was later replaced by Bob McAllister
