Carry On Tuesday July 12th

Your prompt for Tuesday July 12th
This week, we have the first line of Oliver Wendell Holmes poem Contentment
Little I ask, my wants are few
To read this beautiful poem visit Carry On Tuesday Plus 

Here's my offering:

Little I ask, my wants are few 
and nobody knows the answer 
wherever I go, I'll never know 
and you'll follow me for a shilling
and the cow bells will ring - sing sing 
dingaling-ding, ding ding, do-de-do 
don't you know it's true, whistle whistle  
Little I ask, my wants are few
and phew, who can tell the answer
wherever I go, I'll never know
even if ever you were willing
and the Bow bells will ring - sing sing
dingaling-ding, ding ding, dum-de-do
in rhyming slang twang, for you - whit whit...


  1. This reminds me of a childrens rhyme thingie. Like ummm...little bo peep has lost her sheep, something like that anyways.
    It's happy, and bouncy full of life. A fun read.

  2. I was gonna say the same thing, it has a nursery rhyme feel. I like it:-)

  3. De-Lightful post!! :-)
