Day 10 & 11 of NaPoWriMo Trudy Limerick and sketch


Trudy got up and was dressed in a flash,
Seeds, hummed Trudy, and ran out in a dash,
“Breakfast first,” called her mom,
“Toast, tea with lemon balm,”
“Yes, hurry please,” she said, chewing, chomp, mash.

Sniff, Yay spring, thought Trudy, “Critters galore!”
Out the door she scooted to explore more…
Mom called, “where’s your sweater?”
“No need, I’m much better”
Ow, “okay my throats still a tiny sore.”
