Sonnet CCVII

With wild abandon, all the kids would run around.
We’d messify the basement like a big stampede.
We’d moo like cows, we’d screech like birds, we’d mount a steed
and fly like cheetahs, searching like a wise, old hound.
We’d play some board games. Bored, we’d board a couch and read.
And then we’d watch T.V. until we had to eat.
We’d go upstairs, complaining, making such a sound.

But none of us would eat a thing. We’d want to play.
For weeks we waited for this frabjous party day!

We’d run downstairs and raise a ruckus there once more.
We couldn’t tell how late it was – we didn’t care –
We only wanted fun and played our truth or dare -
but then they had to leave, departing out the door.


  1. Inspired by Beth's writing prompt about parties! I thought back to the reckless times of my youth...i.e. less than 10 years ago :P

  2. Oh, the "board/bored" line is so fun! Also really like "messify."


A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
