!! (Exclamations)

Inspired by punctuation, here's a poem for your perusal:




Uh-Oh! Oh No!
Egad! So Sad!
Exclamations fill the gaps,
Conveying our response to ills.
They are not a memory lapse.

Wow! Indeed! I don’t know what to say!
Awesome! Not Bad! Outstanding! Hey!
Supportive salutations,
Our words, reflective acts
Convey congratulations,
Worthy pats on our backs.

Exclaiming is a shout out loud
Expressing our delight.
Woo Hoo! Whoopee!
Xena’s Yah Yah Yah just before a fight.
But I wonder how an Angel
Exclaims when things go right?

For heaven is our final bliss.
Exclamations, all the glory!
Such a simple punctuation
Rapts up our earthly story.

  1. Creative and clever poem ~ Great post for X ^_^

    Thanks for your comments also ~ Have a great weekend!

  2. This is terrific! I never thought of the word, "exclamation". I really enjoyed reading your poem.

  3. Love this! When I interviewed Moms and Grandmas and asked them what they would like to say to the other generation, the answers were all exclamations. "Your son is not perfect!" "I am not your baby-sitter!"

  4. Fun read and great rhythm to this poetry!

  5. I am!!!! Quite!!!! X-traordinarily!!!! drawn to exclamations!!!!

    If that key quit working on my keyboard I would be distraught beyond words!

    Thanks for a cute link to the letter X.
