Story Grove: I Planted a Little Story Seed

Another Saturday, another Centus over at Jenny Matlock

The Challenge:

THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: I planted a little story seed...
WORD COUNT - Not to exceed 100 words, plus the six words of the prompt. 106 total maximum words.
NO ADDITIONAL PICTURES (awww! I love pictures - ku)

I planted a little story seed out by the paw paw tree,
And nourished it every day with tales of land and sea.
Gnomes and wizards, kings and queens and little pigs that fly,
Timeless adventures of pirate ships and birds baked into pie,
As the seed grew day by day, each new leaf held a story,
For the little ones to pick and read fantastic of tales of glory.
And then one day it flowered and scattered seeds anew,
Creating endless groves of tales across the whole world too.

This is lovely and so sincere. I think a child would love this poem as well as an adult. Good job.
