There you sat with kid-safe scissors
And scraps of white paper.
With tape and glue I came to life--
I, a likeness of her.

When I was formed, you took markers
(About a half-dozen)
And set about to color me
In likeness of your cousin.

You took the yellow--her favorite--
And scribbled in my skin.
With the red you drew a large mouth,
A likeness of her grin.

Before long, the color was done,
But something was amiss.
I needed more; I lacked pizzazz--
Not at all her likeness.

Then you got a bright idea
And darted out the room.
You returned with the perfect “jewel.”
The "likeness" could resume.

Upon my head you stuck the “jewel”--
That dinosaur band-aid--
And announced that I was finished:
A likeness of that maid.

When you gave me to your cousin,
She teased you as she did.
But I could only hide my love--
A likeness of that kid.

I love your title. I had to smile at the "dinosaur band-aid" jewel. :) What an imagination you have. This is sweet in a child-like innocent way. You've done a great job setting the tone for this with the "kid-safe scissors", "markers (about half-dozen)", scribbled, "yellow--skin", and "red -- a large mouth". I enjoyed this.

Very cute! Different perspective for sure... great imagination.

Oooh, what I like best about this is your creative, out-of-the-rodinary rhymes and near-rhymes. Very refreshing!
