>"Alicia loves to count" we write poems #30 numbers game


Seven times I ran with a rabbit,
and landed in his hole.
Two times seven they couldn’t
catch my trail.
Fourteen plus five
I rounded into a snare,
and was carried to a palace.
One plus nineteen, 
I meet with twenty Queens’ mothers.
We had herbal tea.
It was two forty-five …
(two plus forty-five)
We danced round in our pedal-pushers,
singing forty-seven giddy tunes.
As we ate 20 cupcakes,
frosted with purple moons.
When I sat to write all about it,
sixty-seven minus sixty …
Seven has forever
been a favourite,
indivisible by any.
