Life's Ditty #NationalPoetryMonth

It is National Poetry Month, and I am joining many others in writing, reading, sharing, and celebrating poetry every day (hopefully) this month. I am participating in a challenge with my Time to Write writing group where we are trying a different form every day inspired by a fun word of the day. Welcome to my Journey with Poetry and Words.

Today's form is a limerick and the word was scatterbrain. I'm not sure what scatterbrain has to do with this poem, but the silliness was what came to mind. 

There once was girl from the city
who danced though life with a ditty.
With rhythm and rhyme
time after time,
she thought she was always quite witty!

Check out the Kidlit Progressive Poem, which is being organized by Margaret Simon at Reflections on the Teche. A different poet adds a line each day for the month of April. You can find the poem's journey below.
