~~~~~~ ***MADISON*** ~~~~~~
There was a girl named Madison Who thought that writing was such fun. All through the day until the night All she would do was write, write, write. She wrote so much that soon she saw The papers covered every wall! The words she knew were many now, Like cat and dog and house and cow. People came from all around, From every state and every town. For Madison was just so smart, That she had turned her words to art. Her parents were so proud of her But what to do, they were not sure. No single space was left on which to tape or glue or even stitch Another word that Maddie wrote. So, grandpa said, 'I'll get my goat!' 'But NO!,' cried Maddie 'Can't you see? I need these words, and they need me!' Just then, Aunt Traci came to call To see the words upon each wall. 'You know,' she said 'What you should do... Is get a book or 3 or 2 And put the words you write each day Inside the books where they shall stay.' To their surprise, all hope was saved. And everybody clapped and waved. 'Now we know,' they all did chant. 'She gets her smarts straight from her aunt.' So they went shopping at the mall To find a notebook--big, not small. Some were furry. Some were sleek. Some were dated week by week. But Maddie chose the perfect book. One that had the 'coolest' look. And on the pages she did write All through the day until the night. Today, her words still line the walls Of libraries and literature halls. For, Maddie writes fantastic tales And sells her books at public sales. Aunt Traci buys one of each book, And keeps them in a special nook. For proud she is of Madison, Who thinks that writing is such fun.
To my niece, Madison, who is only 5, but loves to write (and leave papers plastered all over the place.) Please offer punctuation suggestions. I always have trouble with that part. :)
