A Riddle Challenge!

April 9, 2011 by Rieshy

Sitting in my van in front of the house where my 14 yo has choir practice, attempting to write poetry... 

Blooming dogwoods, and a flock of gorgeous heirloom chickens strutting about the green lawn in front of my windshield laughed at me.

My poem kicked and wriggled and clucked.
So I wrote a riddle instead. 

What Am I?

Bound to birthdays, round to cheer,
bound to the rungs of the dining room chair.

Attached to seat back,
dancing in ceiling-fan currents of air.

Tied to people,
precious people,
I mightn't not always stay there.

That was fast:) You both win the amazing prize of the personal satisfaction of being right.
