Secret

The sparkle of a secret
in a little girl's eye
excitement grows
as she whispers to her mother
let no one know

She tiptoes to her father
her secret they share
and lastly to her sister
who's just standing there

As she whispers to her sister
reality grows
a secret isn't a secret
if more than one knows

Kids!!! can't keep secrets and keeping secret a secret is a secret for them!!!

Brian Miller said...

ha. that is the innocence of kids...they think it is still a secret surely....and they think it will stay so...its a fun little game...

Claudia said...

smiles... and there are def. secrets that just need to be shared - and that makes them feel even nicer though not so secret-ive anymore...smiles

Sweet little poem.

Sandra said...

Love it and it is true.. and little girls are just like that

the only way to keep a secret is to tell no one but yourself is my personal motto. i know this because the moment someone tells me a secret i want to tell someone else.

Such a cute poem...and how true of kids who think that as long as they tell something and mention not to tell, it's still a secret.

Looks like my first comment was not posted - you have handled the theme in such a adorable piece, loved it. I am glad this could be a part of my prompt.

I always have the first impression not to trust anybody with any secrets that I may have, but when I do share them I make sure the person I tell is someone I can trust. Once that trust is broken, they might as well forget ever hearing secrets from me ever again.

Kids are better with secrets than adults me thinks sometime!...:)JP

Arkansas Patti said...

Love the poem filled with so much truth told sweetly. It is how secrets become common knowledge.

LindaG said...
