Hi bloggers! For this month's Acrostic, I chose the word Eeyore, the lovable yet glum little guy from the Winnie the Pooh crew. I wrote a poem and short story so read on if you have some time to spare. Until next time : )
Endearing yet droopy
Ever downcast, glum
Your neighboring friend
Oddly drifts alone
Ringleader of the
Epic melancholy blues
Everyone gathered for Eeyore's surprise birthday party. Pooh, Rabbit, Piglet, Tigger, and Christopher Robin hid in a dark closet.
Emptying out on the floor, they could not contain the surprise anymore. "Happy Birthday," they shouted as streamers and balloons pelted the birthday boy. "How old are you now," they sang.
You'll have to excuse me," Eeyore answered somber. "I stopped counting years ago."
Oh bother," replied Pooh, who seemed most puzzled at Eeyore's unflappable nature.
Rabbit cut the cake before Tigger could dive into it, and Piglet served Eeyore a large slice. The sides of his mouth began to part into a wee smile.
Eeyore, you've got a nice smile," Christopher Robin laughed and snapped a photo of the rare occasion.
