I’ve Got a Voice

I’ve got a voice where you’ve got a song. I’ve got a note, you, a chord. I’ve got a paper, where you’ve got a pen. I’ve got a cry,  you, a sword. I’ve got a thread, where you’ve got a loom. I’ve got a key, you, a kite. I’ve got a sail, where you’ve got…

A Hill to Dye On

I’ve a hill to dye on, child. What have you to say? I’ve a hill to pray on, child. Where have you to sleigh? I’ve a hill to lie on, child. What have you as fair? I’ve a hill to beat on, child. Where have you a snare? -Amy Struthers

Mr. Why

There once lived a boy by the last name of Why who never asked questions or thought. Without man’s permission to guide his ambition, he only retorted with ‘ought’.
