Poetry Reading

My wife and I were asked
Just the other night
To read our poetry
for people who write
We said yes straight away
“what a good idea”
Although to be honest
We had a small fear
The poems were silly
Would adults laugh too?
Going there and trying
Was all we could do
So we picked some to read
And just a few more
Then we stood before them
Hoping not to bore
And much to our surprise
We got lots of praise
Adults like laughing too
With a silly phrase
It made us real happy
To make them all grin
The night was a success
It sure was a win
Though at first we were scared
It was worth the fuss
Thank you Writer’s Cafe
For listening to us
