Freckle Bath


Freckle Bath

I'll tell you what I tried to do,
If you promise you won't laugh.
I tried to wash my freckles off
while I was in my bath.

I scrubbed and rubbed and rubbed and scrubbed
with my washcloth, soap and water.
I tried it with the water cold.
I tried with it much hotter.

But my freckles wouldn't budge an inch,
although I tried my best.
So I kept the freckles where they were
and washed away the rest.

to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
