A Short Indian Tale

A Short Indian Tale I look out of my window As my leaves blow across the lawn Some go into my neighbors yard I laugh, lean back and yawn. We seem to be now having An extended Indian summer Dec 4 with local temps Mid 60’s now they hover But that brought to mind Our recent Thanksgivings day And the sturdy Indians bucks Some say came that day They couldn’t have been all grown Nor wearing a big head-dress There would have been some ladies Dressed proudly in a doeskin dress Strapped upon their sturdy backs A youngster safe and sound His tan cheeks and tiny eyes Just looking all around. This lead me to a tale Of a young papoose buck Who lived a privileged life With almost daily luck But yet at times Things may not work Sometimes there’s just Some silly quirk. A warm, herbal beverage As he went to sleep Settled him down Without a peep. He went to bed In his mom’s wig-wam But woke some mornings In his own “tea-pee”. :o( Written by oldbuck Dec. 4, 2017 as a change of pace from all the Holiday themes

Brandy: Thanks you for the lovely comment. If you want to read a "real charmer" read the last rhyme listed here: One of Lifes Treasures. I think you would enjoy that. Thanks again for reading. oldbuck

Maria: The spelling tells the tale. Here is just a sample of my "humor in rhyme". I'm glad you found some enjoyment in it. I can describe it so well, because I was there. :o) But much younger then. oldbuck
