Nonsense to Celebrate Daylight Saving Time

Water spilling from a cup—
Will you help me wipe it up?
Grass is crying in the rain—
Watch out now, here comes a train!
Throw the broken plate away,
And then ask your friend to play.
Sing and sway, don’t rock the boat!
Just remember: Stones can’t float!

  5. perfect bit of rhyme for this day,

  6. Delightful bit of nonsense verse! You do these things so well.
