Poem Ball - Elayne Goodman
This poem ball is a very cute and fun addition to any space! With two poems about curious women it is an ideal gift for any working lady who needs to brighten her 'work-from-home' office space! Elayne Goodman transformed this 5" x 5" ball into a joyful peice of art.
The blue writing reads:
There was a young lady of Lynn
Who was terribly thin
When she essayed
To drink lemonade
She slipped through the straw and fell in
The green writing reads:
There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was faster than light
She set out one day
In a relative way
And returned the previous night!
