Real toads like Lewis Carroll

For a day of endless peace
And a night of sacred slumber
I would rejoice with all my voice
It'd be as magical as alabaster

To dream lightly of butterflies
And explore with cat like paws
The idea alone is full of hope
Such serendipity in those thoughts

There'd be silence and synchronicity
I'd be bedazzled by an indigo gypsy
There my patience would be ubiquitous
Despite the linoleum being orangey

So I keep imagining the shingadoogie
And the snicklefritz with horsefeathers
Through the briar in mariposa I know
The periwinkle will break my tethers

Xxxxxxx

At real roads today we were given this fantabulous list of words for our inspiration for poetry.  I set out to try and get them all in one poem, but that was crazy thinking.  I hope you like what I created; which of the words did I miss out?  Please visit real toads for what my fellow poets created.

I think most of us left out the word "ejaculation"! LOL
This is very nicely done, Emma. It puts mine to shame.
Oh, and the butterflies' paws? They have to have claws for clinging on briars, but don't use them otherwise.

This was a fun read. I especially liked the favorite words of your own that you added - snicklefritz and shingadoogie.

Amazing how you worked so many words into this poem, and still gave it form and structure,and a story to tell.

A clever use of all the words!

Very Lewis Carroll - a dreamy schizophrenia journey, to be sure.
