Something said to Nothing:
“Let’s do something nice today.”
Said Nothing back to Something
“Oh, go away and play.”
“There’s nothing that I want to do.
There’s nothing left to say.”
Something said “Just look outside -
It’s such a lovely day.”
“Let’s do something interesting;
Let’s think of something good.”
“Ah yes, that would be very nice
If only I just could!”
“Well, let’s go for a country walk.
We’ll see the world outside.”
“Well I’m not going anywhere,”
Was what her friend replied.
“Well how about a film then?
Or let’s climb the Eiffel Tower.
Come into the garden then
And see the lovely flowers.”
Nothing said to Something
Not one word, nor little sound,
For her life was very boring as
Her friend quite quickly found.
