Little Joey Jimble,
Lost his mother’s thimble.
His soldier was wearing it as a hat.
Being a polite and sorry chap,
He found an acorn cap,
That fit to do the job, just like that.
My attempt at writing a nursery rhyme, as a poem for children. Growing up I loved reading Mother Goose, and still have songs in my head from an audio sing-along tape I listened to all the time. Sometimes they didn’t make much sense but the rhymes are charming and so are the names! And there’s something about thimbles that make them collectible, I never really use one, but the designs can be so creative. Acorn caps are very cute too, I mean look!
Thanks for reading,
