Pretty Flowers

Walking in the afternoon sun,
my little eyes spotted a garden of colorful PANSIES,
Bright purple, red, yellow and and pink,
I knew I had to have some, and at least one of each.

Crouching down on the sidewalk so low,
I was going to try to reach in so slow
to grab a handful of the beautiful flowers
to bring them home so that I see see them at all hours.

Pushing my hand in the opening on the fence,
I got hold of the purple and yellow ones with little effort
but as I pushed my arm in as far as it would go,
the pretty pink one was too far for me to take hold.

Laying flat out on the sidewalk,
my arm stuck in the fence hole that wouldn't let go.
Tears running down my checks and sobs coming so quick afraid not because
of being stuck in the fence, but because I tried to steal the flowers.

The owner of the house seeing my dilemma,
came over to me to see why I was there.
He then tried to pull my arm out of the hole,
but couldn't get my arm to budge out of that little tiny hole.

The nice neighbor man had to cut out part of the link,
so that I could be set free from that horrible fence.
He then shook his head at me and said --
Please don't steal anything, not even pretty  flowers,
always remember to first ask for whatever your heart desires!!
