A Busy Day

A Busy Day

(Triple Whitney)

When you go
out to the fair,
Never know
what’s waiting there.
Certainly,
you’ll have some fun,
long before the day is done.

Ride the sky,
or eat fair food.
Butterflies
improve your mood.
Don’t forget
the doggy show.
Pretend to make tractors go.

Matters not
what things you choose.
There’s a lot
To chase the blues.
Everywhere
brings many joys
to ten year old playful boys.

 

Author Notes
I took my grandson, Jeremy, to the Minnesota State Fair. We had a great time together, despite the crowds. Fair food was plentiful and yummy. We rode the sky tram, climbed the machenery on display, watched a dog show, and enjoyed the butterfly room (amomg many other things). Spent the whole day there.

This Poem consists of 3 Whitneys.

A Whitney is a poem that has a set format of 3/4/3/4/3/4/7. I’ve done this one in three Whitneys to make stanzas in Whitney format. I’ve also added rhyming which is not a requirement of this style. The rhyme scheme is: ababcdd.

This picture montage was taken by the author at the State Fair on August 29, 2014.
