"Roses are red, violets are blue",
She wrote so many a time.
Wanting to be a poetess,
And learn how to rhyme.

"I think that I shall never see....",
But someone other than me,
And seemed to be most famous,
Has written about a tree.

I guess I will have to write my own,
And do the very best I can,
To show my feelings deep inside,
Since writing I first began.

"Sugar is sweet and so are you",
That too has been taken.
Mom says I should ask Jesus to help me,
And I will know when I awaken.
