For Dave....hyproglo....

Storybook Road

I used to live in the city,
But I moved to Storybook Road.
I liked the change of scenery,
And the stories that were told.

The brick house on the corner,
That’s where the Little Pigs Live.
The bad wolf visited just yesterday,
But the house still wouldn’t give.

Do you see that cozy cottage?
The one up on the hill?
Jack got tired of breaking his crown,
So he moved there with Jill.

Oh, Little Red Riding Hood,
Yes, she lives here too!
She just moved next door,
To the Little Ol’ Lady in the Shoe.

Old McDonalds Farm,
Is about a mile away.
He married Old Mother Hubbard.
And together they now stay.

Then in that mansion,
Stays Old King Cole.
I hear him every morning,
Calling for his pipe and bowl.

The Cow that jumps over the moon,
Lives here with the Cat and the Fiddle.
They are such dear friends of mine,
I’ve known them since I was little.

Well I guess it's time to go,
It’s near the time to sleep.
I still have to call Little Boy Blue,
To help Bo Peep find her sheep.

Goodbye and thanks for visiting!

  This challenge was probably the most tried. Everyone has a different slant and it's awesome. I cant believe how many people wrote. This was just great. I smiled all the way through. LiLi, you done good here. Your rhymes were perfect and it all went together well. Congrats on a job well done.

  This was fabulous! Everyone has done a fantastic job with this challenge...however this one was probably one of my favorite ones. This really took me back to being a kid and it was just so adorable! There was a lot of thought put into this piece and I really enjoyed it! I couldn't help but smile while I was reading it and I think I'll read this one to my kids tonight before they go to bed! Thanks so much for posting this!

  very cute. I like your traditional theme with this, certainly a far cry from my own. Mother Goose I think was a friend to all of us, and we've all been on that road at least how you set up the neighborhood, I could imagine it...I like the bit about Jack and Jill moving to the top of the hill. Bout time they did that.

  That was neat, how they all intertwined and are living in a community. Very cool maynard. I liked how you finally put them all together, cuz they were just hangin about and we all knew they would be getting together someday having neighborhood yard sales and barbeques, HA! Very entertaining Li Li! Have a good one and keep smilin'

Well I enjoyed this very much, great stuff!

Until next read,
