WHIMSY



In the dictionary I found a word
That’s often silly and absurd
It’s magical and conjures such delight
As bewitching as a nymph or sprite
It’s quirky and zany, delicate and flimsy
The mere word WHIMSY
As it crosses my lips
Elevates my every mood snips
WHIMSY unbolts a drawer of bling
Reaches in where everything
Imaginable longs to soar
Enticing me to explore
WHIMSY awakens my muse
And stirs up playfulness to amuse
It summons dainty faeries
And heavenly winged deities
My favorite word without a doubt is WHIMSY

My favorite word is probably "frolic" so I guess we could frolic and whimsy together. Loved what you did out of one little word, my friend.
