Poetry: Girls and Boys

One of the blogs I visit, Rebecca Writes, had a post on children’s poetry and I left a quick little poem in the comments. I decided to edit it a bit and post it here.

Girls and Boys

Girls are soft, with rounded edges
Boys are hard, and burst through hedges

Girls will cry, and it ruins their day
Boys will sniffle, and be on their way

Girls all giggle, but then hold it in
Boys all guffah, with sidesplitting grin

Girls be girls, and who can define?
Boys be boys, and mellow like wine
