Girlie from my bow to my toes…..

Girlie from my bow to my toes…..

Through the country With her parents When she spied a beautiful sad-eyed Grey and white pony. And next to it


Through the country
With her parents
When she spied a beautiful sad-eyed
Grey and white pony.
And next to it was a sign
That said,
FOR SALE—CHEAP.
“Oh,” said Abigail,
“May I have that pony?
May I please? ”
And her parents said,
“No you may not.”
And Abigail said,
“But I MUST have that pony.”
And her parents said,
‘Well, you can’t have that pony.’
“Well, you can have a nice butter pecan
Ice cream cone when we get home.”
And Abigail said,
“I don’t want a butter pecan
Ice cream cone,
I WANT THAT PONY—
I MUST HAVE THAT PONY.”
And her parents said,
“Be quiet and stop nagging—
You’re not getting that pony.”
And Abigail began to cry and said,
“If I don’t get that pony I’ll die.”
And her parents said, “You won’t die.
No child ever died yet from not getting a pony.”
And Abigail felt so bad
That when she got home she went to bed,
And she couldn’t eat,
And she couldn’t sleep,
And her heart was broken,
And she DID die—
All because of a pony
That her parents wouldn’t buy.
Shel Silverstein

That Shel Silverstein poem cracks me up and I thought this was the perfect place to share it. I couldn’t imagine growing up without a pony…. My very first pony taught me not only how to ride, but how to love. Her name was Roxy and looked much like this new pony from JIAN. And true, I’d fill her mane with braids and bows and I even painted her hooves. She was my world. She was my freedom.
