In response to dVerse Poets Quadrille #148 Papered Poems
44 word count only challenge

Paper paper I declare
Paper paper everywhere
Lots of paper lined in ink
Lettered paper helps me think

Paper with a glistening sheen
I don’t even know what that means
Though I love all paper to write upon
Christmas paper is the most fun

  10. Paper paper down the drain
    cleans my bottom lower
    but text on paper fills my brain
    wisdom written gives me power

  13. Grace! Most definitely. Due to COVID there’s not been any presents under my tree for the past two years and I really missed the prettiness of wrapped packages! Thank you!
