Mop and Broom

There are many things
to do with a mop and broom
perhaps to clean the room
with a zoom, zoom, zoom.

We can pretend they are horses
and we'll take them for a ride.
Or the broom can be a groom
and the mop will be a bride.

We can hop upon them swiftly
as into the stars we soar.
And we can pretend we're riding
on the backs of dinosaurs.

So won't you come play with me
and with my broom and mop?
We can jump and dance and twirl
and never, never stop. 

   Have you ever played with a mop or a broom?  What did you do?  My son would use the broom for his guitar when he was young.  Or sometimes the handle would be a conductor's baton.  Use you imagination and write a poem about a mop or broom, or even a rake today.  Have fun.

  An imagination is a wonderful gift.  Use yours.


  1. That's a bride and groom image I haven't ever thought of.

    1. This whole thought about playing with a mop and broom came from Tabatha Yeatts. You'll never be able to look at your mop the same way again.
