[Please, take] your ti[me] and enjoy this [wit]ty and [h]appy poem of wonder and magic like [you] wouldn't believe!

[I] skip along [t]he [fl]owered path.
Such [a] beautiful, rose[y] day!
A hop and whi[s]tle to [m]erril[y] match
Our beating [heart]s - Hurray!

[Hel]lo, Mister Flower, along the road,
Your scent is sweet in your [p]ot.
I wonder who planted your abode.
They must be a [me]rry lot!

[The da]ytime sta[r] is full and [k]ind!
I w[is]h it’d [ne]ver le[a]ve.
Miste[r] [D]usk w[on’t leave me] blind;
[He]’ll mento[r] me home this [e]ve.

[No]w [I] lay my head to sleep
A[t] the [s]t[a]rt of this g[l]or[i]ous [e]vening.
[Let]’s count [m]or[e] adorable sheep
And [d]ream of l[i]ght and m[e]aning.

Took me a while to read the very deep hidden message, M. A. Here's hoping you are okay. A brilliant composition, by the way.

Thank you! I'm good, just something creative I thought of, so I'm alright.

unmasked delusions

That was unexpected, creative and interesting. Made it so much more eerie reading it the second time, slowly reading the letters in my head : ex: "I...t...s...a......lie...l..et...me...die."

Good one.

Brilliant stuff. More than just an intellectual exercise - a beautifully written poem with a dark, contrasting message hidden within. Very unique and memorable.
