    The Snake

    In my flower garden there is a rainbow of colors
    A rainbow of beauty many flowers to see
    The smell of carnations sweetly scent the air
    A flower bed of color everywhere

    When picking flowers I came upon a noise
    It hissed and wiggled the grass began to move
    I stopped in my tracks to see what it was
    Quietly no movement from me

    It hissed and it wiggled making the grass move
    Slowly one foot in front of the other
    I made my move

    I wanted to run I wanted to scream
    It sounded like a snake to me
    My heart was pounding
    I wanted to cry
    Oh me oh my

    When suddenly Dad came to rescue me
    With his big wand he started to look
    All I wanted to do was boogie

    It hissed and wiggled moving the grass around
    When suddenly it jumped out at me
    I ran with a wiggle screaming snake

    When dad caught it by the tail
    Now it wiggles and hisses to another tune
    In the window of the zoo.

    Here Reader is afforded the opportunity to watch you, Poet Bettysrainbow48 actually moving through your colorful days, and we're able to sit, watch as you describes the hissing of the snake... and I can now recognize anaphora when I see it... the repeated phrase, "it hissed and wiggled... " each time, building Reader anticipation... until the conclusion, which is Oh so You, Bettysrainbow48 and never violent, always memorable and kind... our dear, dear slithering snakey one snakes "hisses and wiggles.. " within the zoo... how factual and sweet is this !! ~

    You are welcome. My dad was the same way. I hate snakes!!!

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
