Sue Nimble, a poem.

March 8, 2017

I first wrote the draft to this in 2013 when I was taking a poetry class at Chaffey College. I have since had time to think and have only made a few revisions. This is the kind of poem that is best read aloud, the way I like them.

Sue Nimble by K. McConnell

Sue Nimble Thimble
Rimble, Dimble, Dimble.
Do you always dance in the street?
Your slender legs
And pretty wavy arms
Woo me away with your glittery charms.

Sue Nimble Thimble
Rimble, Dimble, Dimble.
Do you always read a book
By the old plum tree?
The Fruit is sweet,
And it always makes you think-
Rimble, Dimble, Dink.

Sue Nimble Thimble
Rimble, Dimble, Dee.
Do you always wear out your tennis shoes?

You would too,
If you had just walked
A mile in someone else’s shoes?
