“Sit still, Flossie. I see Anneli out there with her camera again. Don’t move.”
“Oh, whew! She’s just taking pictures of her poppies. That IS a nice one though, isn’t it?”
“I hear ya, I hear ya. You don’t care about the flowers…. You’ll just have to be patient and I’ll find a bug for you.”
“Oh, this motherhood is not all it’s cracked up to be.”
Flossie Flicker flies around,
Making that familiar sound,
FLICK-a, FLICK-a, FLICK, she cries,
Mother’s tired and she sighs.
“Feeding Flossie all day long,
I’m exhausted, not so strong,
But the child is growing fast
She’ll be beautiful at last.
“All my work will be worthwhile,
And I know her dad will smile,
Saying she’s a gorgeous girl,
Best darn flicker in the world.”
