Poetry By Ken in Rainbow Colors






Don't stutter silly Sally, why you here?
Did you come about my little Red dear?
Sweet smell 'in Red is the apple of my eye
So say, is that why you're stopping by?

Swinging on a gate, Sally said don't be late,
Stuffing snuff she said don't make her wait,
My brogan shoes headed her way on the run
'Cause time with sweet Red is a time of fun.

I got a bonnie honey-bunny, I call her Red
She don't like cake but love's cornbread,
She's big of topknot and little in the middle,
She'll sing and dance if I play my fiddle.

One eye is blue and the squinty one brown,
She wears cute freckles all the way down,
Red toenails on two left feet--way too big
But play a fiddle reel and She'll do a jig.

Pretty Red smiles and darkens the sun
Oh how I love my freckled face one,
Juicy kisses like fire, my hearts desire
And if I said stop that, I'd be a liar.

Her feel makes me gush, my heart rush,
From head to toe my skin turns blush,
Milk cow in poppa's corn--pig's in a sty,
I got love dust for Red in both my eyes.

Sister's got a fat baby and mom a plum pie,
I get plumb lovesick when Red comes nigh,
Don't ducks quack and hungry pigs squeal?
Well, I love little Red, that's how I feel.

Fleet feet like a quick quail, I run the trail,
Gotta meet sweet honey-bun without fail,
Good-time is wasting and love won't wait,
So said silly Sally swing 'in on the gate.

Creek side I spy Red eat 'in chocolate pie
On a blanket in the clover high and dry,
In daddy's red barn tomorrow we'll wed,
Oh the joy! Just gimme Red till I'm dead.
