Short Kids Poem: Carpet Seeds

short kids poem carpet

I sprinkled carpet seeds
before going to bed.
(They’re tiny little pods
of balled-up dark green thread.)

Immediately my floor
sprouted fine green hair.
It grew up through my toes!
I leaped onto the chair!

A rug crept up the wall.
My room had Berber drawers.
A tapestry had grown
clear across the doors.

A dozen fiber vines
tangled through my room.
A nylon carpet flower
opened in full bloom.

I could not believe
the way the fabric spread…
I’m glad I didn’t plant
the leopard seeds instead!
