They were only imaginary friends
Though brought to life in such away
One most surely wanted to play
With these boys and girls of imaginary worlds
There stories awoke breathing such vitality
One most could see and feel all their energy
Firing such marvelous desires..
As floating down the Mississippi river on a raft
Swinging through the jungle on a vine
Strolling the cool mountains of the Alpine
Each so utterly unique..
Bringing a smile to a child on rainy days
These living breathing wonderful fantasies
Had truly achieved immorality
For generations they've stayed
Young and old alike still find them to be...
The best of rainy day company
This was very good. I agree with all the other positive comments given you. You webbed a very good legacy of famous books into a poem, and a rather good one at that. I liked this one alot. It was written very good and everything else was right on mark. Very good job.
Linda This one I really liked I cant tell you how many times as a child I escaped my cruel world to find beautiful dreams awaiting me in a book I still revisit those times every now and then and escape into a good book today This write really took me thru a trip down memory lane Thank You! Ron
It's, okay I guess, not my type of poem, it's true they haved stayed through generations, but you should add more spellbinding effects, because this can be used as n childrens' poem, and if you want to keep them hooked rather talk BIG and leave n little sentimental stuff because they aren't bothered by how long the carracters have been here they just want to know how big they are. but overall a nice little poem.
I loved this, probably because I always had a handful of imaginary friends to pick from when I was bored. Until the day she died, my grandmother used to tell stories about watching me play with my "friends". Evidently, I was entertainment for all because they were so fantastical. Her fave was the friend that had 15 children at once...lol Thanks for bringing those memories back. I needed a smile tonight. jan
I agree with Maggie and the rest on this one for sure because where would we be with an imagination or a daydream or two now and then. Absolutely noth'n wrong with a good fantasy to help get ya through those rainy days. This was a very enjoyable read... This poem reminds me of a poem I wrote called "Gidgy Gadgits" because of the fantasy and mak'n it through those rainy days. Thanks for sharing this one with the rest of us... !doc'
