TITLE: ALL IS RELATIVE

Through life has been the touch of one so dear as if to plant
A seed of growth into my life by an uncle or an aunt
To introduce them all to you would be quite a large task
Never-the-less I will try to take off each one’s mask

When I was young there was the one who loved to sing and play
She would not sit around and waste the better part of day
How she endured and energized enough to in me plant
That one day I’d need to be like her for she was Resili-Aunt

Then was the one from Italy whose job it was to teach
She was so smart and keen and wise and to me she did reach
How did she know for all she did would in me greatly plant?
No matter where upon this earth, like her I was Import-Aunt

Then of course the faithful one who never missed a trick
She was one to call whene’er a problem was to lick
I watched and gleaned from all the things that ever she did plant
There’s much to learn from this dear one her name is Dilig-Aunt

I’ll ne’er forget the one who introduced me to the LORD
The stories she did tell to me never left me bored
Seed and seeds she did sow and in my heart did plant
Her name to me is dearer now for she is called Serve-Aunt

The last one I have mentioned planted farther than to me
Witnessing to brothers-in-law, she got them all you see
And though they said that it was all “poppycock and bunkle”
In the end they each gave up and all cried out, “UNCLE!”

Very fun and creative take on the topic! I loved this.

I love your creativity with words! "Resili-Aunt," "Import-Aunt," "Dilig-Aunt", and especially "Serve-Aunt". I need to strive to be that kind of Aunt. Then your wonderful play on words with "In the end they each gave up and all cried out, "UNCLE!" I love that! And your title is PERFECT! This was so much fun to read and your message was excellent!

Heehee! This made me chuckle here! I loved the names for the Aunts and especially at the end where they all cried out "Uncle!" Very well done-I loved it! ^_^

I love that ending - it is perfect! This was a very enjoyable read...
I would suggest that you add more punctuation to make this "flow" a little more easlily...
Great job with a fun poem that does a great job matching the topic!

This was truly clever and fun at the same time. To get what seemed a difficult idea to rhyme is truly creative. I really enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable. I loved how you gave each aunt a name that represented their action. Throwing in "uncle" at the end was great. Good job!
