return to dreamland

Presenting you with a compendium
of worlds unlocked, the Lor flies to the sun,
unfettered, unafraid of any boss!
You can't be stopped upon your galleon.

The Pop Star needs protection, that's your cause.
No doomer stops you, no account for loss--
Battle his soul in the arena true,
keep the universe safe for all of us!

Wormhole in the asteroid belt? Go through!
Fly high and brave as star warriors do!
Bestowed upon you, knight, a magic crown--
All galaxies and stars just wait for you.
This morning, Kerry challenged us to write a rubaiyat over at Real Toads, and my kids challenged me to write a poem about Kirby. So I wrote this for them.


  1. So, if you ever have a day where you question yourself as a mother or your commitment to the cause...remember that once you wrote this and banish all doubt. As a mother/poet, you ROCK!

  2. This is WONDERFUL. I totally love it. Your kids must be thrilled.

  3. Gosh! The Kirby franchise should hire your services.. this is boss!
    My fave Rubaiyat was the last - the star warrior scene threw my imagination far out across the universe.
    Thanks for playing :)

  4. Kerry and your kids...you had no choice! ;-)

  5. I liked it all, but I especially love the last stanza!!! Wonderful!

  6. You super-mom you...I'm with Mary Ann.

  7. Marian, my love, you never cease to amaze me.
