About Me--vote for your favorite poem!

If you'll scroll down the page, you'll see a little "About Me" blurb on the right hand side of the page. Unfortunately, my "About Me" section is nauseatingly boring. So I've decided to replace it...and you get to help me choose what to replace it with! I've written three poems in various styles. Read them, then vote for your favorite in the Comments section below.

1. About Me: A Haiku
Chickie and Zoodle
daily convincing Mommy
it's fun to go mad

2. About Me: A Limerick
With my toddler, and infant, and dog,
No wonder my brain's in a fog.
So do you have the guts
To come see me go nuts?
Take a seat, get online, C. Beth Blog!

3. About Me: A Shakespearean Sonnet
My Mommy resume' is long and dense.
It's filled with all my schooling and degrees--
A Master's in Detecting Poopy Scents,
A Doctorate in Making Great Grilled Cheese.
And then peruse the list of skills I've got,
For I can read a board book upside down.
I can't yet get my tot to use the pot,
But sometimes I can take away her frown!
My reference list is short, but all you need,
And you can contact both if you so choose.
You'll hear a lot from Chickie, yes, indeed;
Good luck translating all of Zoodle's coos!
I guess this mommy job was made for me--
I only wish the pay was more than...free.

Oh my goodness, Beth! You are too funny! And a talented poet. I wouldn't have known it!! :)
I think I might give it a try sometime!

Sam said...

I vote for all three!

Becky said...

I think you should moonlight as a poet! Except I'm pretty sure that doesn't pay much, either.

I like all three, but I think the haiku is my favorite.

Bri said...

I like the Limerick the best! Good luck choosing!

Cathy said...

I'm having a hard time between #3 and #2. Can you put them together? :) But if I have to choose, I'd say #3 just because it has more info... Love, mom

Oh my, I just read the others and now you have one vote for each plus the vote for all 3! Good luck deciding!

Oops! Forgot to vote! Duh! I LOVE #3, but I think #2 might be best for this purpose. Or maybe #3? #2? :)

Grr...what's up Blogger not accepting my username and password at random times when I comment? Weird!

I think I like the limerick best. I'm impressed by the iambic pentameter in the sonnet, though! It reminds me of this: You sit serenely on a field of grass. (Do you remember?)

Beth,
I love reading your blogs! It's almost hard to remember the time when it was just you and Jason! I vote for the limerick, although I really liked the haiku as well.
