A Poetic Story


Once upon a time, long, long ago, there was a little girl whose name was Emma Jo!
She loved to smile and laugh, and hardly ever frowned,
And never missed a chance to dress up like a clown. 
She loved to play with dolls, for sure her puppy, too;
And read aloud her fairy tales and how sweet dreams came true !
Her mother taught her well, and never missed a chance
To take her by the hands--together they would dance!
Not only did she dance, she loved to sing as well,
And when the music box would play 'The Farmer in the Dell'…
She sang the words so loud and never missed a beat,
Her voice so young and yet so strong each note would sound so sweet!
But what she treasured most, it happened every night,
Was reading “Once upon a time” to everyone in sight!
For sure her mom and dad, and little brother, too,
Would listen to the stories as she read them through and through.
She never seemed to tire of all the stories found
Within her Little Golden books.  Each one was so profound!
It was such fun to hear the emphasis and tone
That Emma Jo would use to make each story known!
For sure the pigs it seemed would meet their final doom,
But just in time the tide would turn and joy replaced their gloom!
One by one she read them and always heaved a sigh,
For in the end she knew, there’d be no need to cry-
For good outweighed the bad in every story read,
So sleepily she hugged them all and headed off to bed!
The purpose of this story: Simply to remind us of the days when children cherished the fantasies and imaginations of CHILDHOOD!
As you read this story, for the better part, most of it was in rhythm and rhyme--
To once again remind us of “Once upon a time…”
Yes, indeed, each story, though different yet similar, always ended with the same final words: “And they all lived happily ever after”…remember when?
