A Shepherd Girl

She wore a ribbon in her hair.
I asked ,"Who are you and going where?"
She said," she is the daughter of a shepherd and going to give him tea."

I asked'"where is your father's goat shed?"
She said'" above the hill and below the moon lies my father's goat shed."

Her father called her with a howl.
She quickly ran away with the tea bowl.

But I wanted to stay with her.
For she was as white as snow and as sweet as a rose.

  6. Love the rhythm and the lightness. Strange though from the first review and after I get to thinking, this could be taken as not so light after all if read into the wrong way...lol. Great writing.

  9. These rhymes most always end up nice, Vandana.
    But in reality little girls should NEVER talk
    to strangers.

    Thank you for siding with my waiting lady.
    Most will.
