Touch the Crabby - A Poem

Touch the Crabby
by Dawn M. Hamsher

I touched it once.
I'll touch again.
Why won't the crabby
be my friend?

I want to hold him
close to me,
but he keeps trying to 
pinch me, see?

My mommy says,
"Leave him alone!
You're not allowed 
till you are grown."

But I don't listen.
I'm going to try
to get the crabby
one more time.


  1. This little fellow's thoughts are just written on the photo for us to read. Your poem captures them completely! :)

  2. I love your writing voice! This was so cute.

  3. I love it! Your poem perfectly matches what a child's voice sounds like. Good job!

  4. So cute! Like Samantha said, you've captured the voice of a child perfectly!

  5. Pam, Shelly, Samantha, and Brianna, Thank you for your comments! This was a fun and simple prompt.

    Blessings to you all.


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
