It's another fabulous Friday! I'm joining in again for Friday Reflections with a lovely little poem based on the prompt:
If toys had feelings. Write a post or story and get creative!
IF TOYS HAD FEELINGS
If toys had feelings, they'd hate the toy box
Barbie would emerge, shaking her blonde locks
"I'm free!" she would shout triumphant, and then
March off, leaving behind bland old plastic Ken
Toys DO have feelings, that delightful doll house
The complex jigsaw puzzle, the cute cuddly mouse
Huggable, lovable teddy bears sit all in a row
Their expressions hide all the things they know
If toys had feelings they'd be alive
Full of adventure, daring to strive
Round marbles gleaming ethereal hues
Ballerinas perched in glittering shoes
If toys had feelings, the little Lego Man
Would bustle about his magic Lego Land
Suddenly it's clear there's more than you can see
You'll fly the wishing chair, climb the faraway tree!
Toys have feelings, I believe they do!
Just open your mind, you'll see it too!
The rusty toy truck forlorn and dejected
Mr Five has left him alone and rejected
Building blocks scattered with abandon and glee
Played with by all day by creative Miss Three
A train set whirs along the track, chug-a-chug-chug
Match box cars weave around the pattern on the rug
Toys have feelings? Why yes, of course!
See the quirky grin on the quaint rocking horse?
The rocket ship that blasts boldly to the moon
A music box moves us with a melancholy tune
Dainty cups on jaunty saucers, a tea party for two
Don't hurt their feelings, whatever you do!
Sip the pretend tea and sigh in sheer delight
Cherish those toys with all of your might!
Toys DEFINITELY have feelings, I have decided
This fanciful thought must not be derided
Toys recall the feelings we didn't think would last
Joy, innocence, childhood memories long past
Toys remind us of the playful side of life
To make time for laughter, cast aside strife
Enjoy those toys like you are still young
Their magic and mystery has only just begun!
Linking up for Friday Reflections and FYBF.
What was your favourite childhood toy?
Do you make time to be playful?
