why,  hello daddy
what you doin’  around here?
i almost didn’t see you
running up and down so fast
on those long legs
you almost just be a blur

are you looking for your supper?
i’d like to stay and help you
i surely would
but it’s getting late
an’  i gotta go home
maybe i’ll see you tomorrow

oh,  hello daddy-o
well,  look at you!
that looks like fun
dancin’  all around
on those long legs
you sure know how to swing!

are you looking for a partner?
i’d like to stay and dance with you
i surely would
but it’s getting late
an’  i best get on home
maybe i’ll see you tomorrow

hey,  Mister Long Legs
how you doin’  tonight?
looks like you’re all tuckered out
just hangin’  there
with those long legs
swayin’  in the breeze

i guess you never did get to eat
i’d of  liked to help you out
i surely would
but not by being your meal
now i’ll  be flyin’ on  home
maybe i’ll remember you tomorrow

  1. dani – the Daddy Long Legs is no longer available :-( I was ready to stroll down memory lane!! Great write!! ♥♥♥

    • do you mean the actual Daddy Long Legs with six legs and two wings is extinct? i wrote this poem while watching a Daddy Long Legs spider on her web out on my balcony. for such a benign-looking insect, she can be brutal ~ i’ve now witnessed her capturing her dinner twice. fascinating and horrific at the same time.

      thanks for your visit, Becca! ♥♥♥

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
