Another Story by Amber over there
By Sheila and/or Amber, Sep 23 2016 06:06PM
Ambers in Goa busy with some new projects and writing new stories!
Heres a little one from the summer
Pocket sat and pocket slept
And pocket wouldn't play
When all the other children came
Pocket could only to say
The games are tiring My legs are sore
The grass is much too green
The Suns too hot the sky too blue
The trees are just obscene
Pockets mum and pockets dad
Despaired at what to do
Pocket just sits! He only sleeps!
He's always got the flu
Pocket wailed out the window
Can't stand this prickly heat!
And sat inside the fridge for hours
Without a bite to eat
Then pockets mum and pockets dad
Called up their uncle Diction
Explaining the predicament
Of young pockets affliction
Leave it to me dear uncle said
And hummed a merry tune
And from the trunk inside his bunk
Produced an air balloon
We must set sail my sullen lad
He said scooping up young pocket
The wind picked up and lifting up
They shot off like a rocket
It's going too fast! It's far too bright
Young pocket cried aloud
The ground is spinning out from me
We're going to hit a cloud!
I'm far too hot! The balloon will drop!
As the fields went whizzing by
past oceans, lands and bits of sand
They flew across the sky
And gently stopped upon a rock
As pocket blinked his eyes
The cold in the air just made him stare
And my what a surprise!
Nothing but white from here to there
From up to down to up,
The air was crackling with the ice
That covered every top
What do you think my dearest lad
Uncle diction quietly asked
It's quite alright pocket replied,
As a polar bear strolled passed
An man in fur came quietly up
And took pocket by the hand
And out the ballon he hopped
To explore the South Pole land
Inside his house made of ice bricks
They dined on roasted fish
And drank hot tea and buttered toast
A most delicious dish
And for the first time ever
Amidst that icy wild
Young pocket felt quite warm inside
And finally he smiled
You see, said uncle to the young boy
Its really quite insane!
When you dont like your little life
To sit there and complain!
The world is full of magic lad
Theres places just for you!
Just step outside to see it all
Its the only thing to do!
