My teddybear is in the washing machine
Along with a pair of sox
And my corduroy jeans
And some other things
Mom found in the laundry box.

I can hear him bouncing back and forth
And sloshing round and round
He must be having a dizzy ride.
When he bumps against the side
His button eyes make a pinging sound.

I'm glad I'm not a teddy bear
That gets tossed in the washing machine.
It sure would hurt
While it scrubbed off the dirt.
I would never want to be clean.

Katelouise - I really liked this
This was fun to read, and had a wonderful flow. Your format, spelling and punctuation are very clean.

This is refreshing! Keep up the good work. I'll have to see what else you've written!

the girl and her toy
This is very adorable.

A recent event at Writing Forums involved a misunderstanding over a picture that a pretty young woman sent to me. The picture captures the most adorable of the world made of girlhood, beauty and nostalgia therefor. This poem recaptures innocence of the above.

Any poem that moves one to feel, to recollect, to feel inspired or to adore is true art.
