A perfect messy place ~ poem

Before we moved house, I wrote this poem about a messy place session in our garden.  Now, the words don’t really apply because our garden is small and we haven’t got any grass!  But the sentiment’s still there 🙂

A perfect messy place

“Let’s make something”,

Said our daughter to me,

As she ran out on

The grass with glee.

~

Her little toes,

Her little feet,

The sun was out,

And what a treat!

~

From our treasure hunt,

We had some ‘loot’

We’d had fun,

We’d had a hoot!

~

Making in the garden…

A perfect messy place;

A moment to treasure,

At a leisurely pace.

~

With paper, glue,

Sparkles, glitter,

Butterflies fluttered,

Birds went twitter.

~

What a lovely moment,

What a lovely day,

But the best bit?

Hardly any tidying away!

~

Do you go outside ‘creating’, whether you’re all wrapped up or bare foot in the warmer months?  I’d love to know!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere
