W–Write, Don’t Wilt

writing creativity


Penelope loved to work on quilts.

She made up stories while she quilted.

However, when she tried to write,

The notion just plain wilted.


Athena always liked to knit.

She dreamed stories while she knitted.

But putting those on paper? No.

Her dream fabrications flitted.


Anthony liked to build with wood.

He thought up stories while he built.

When he began to write them, though,

His creativity would wilt.


Clara worked hard to clean her house.

She thought stories while she dusted.

But when she strove to write the words,

Her iron will always rusted.


So – Peter, Mary, June, and Dwight,

Create while you are creating.

But don’t lose courage when you write.

Your audience is awaiting.
