Poetry By: patspoems

KillerInStink commented that a poem could be written about anything "even a peg on the line". This is my attempt to prove him right. I had written and entered it before and had some comments, but Booksie in it's infinite wisdom somehow decided to clear it when I tried to insert a picture of a peg!!! soooooo frustrating

A lonely peg up on the line

Rest at last, a day's work done

All day long he had struggled and fought

To keep the sheet up and basking in the sun

"Hold on to me" the flapping sheet had called

"Don't let me fall upon the ground"

So the little peg held on with all his might

He didn't know where this strength he'd found.

As the big sheet soared towards the sky

Enjoying the wind through every thread

The poor little peg twisted and turned

And firmly held that sheet, from off the bed.

So the next time you see a lonesome peg

Don't just ignore it and hurry by

Take him in and know his worth

As without the peg your washing won't dry.

Written especially for KillerInStink
