Caper About

As kids we enjoyed capering about with friends
frolicking with laughter and a joyful spring

As we age capering gets forgotten
but why not try to age disgracefully

Play more practical jokes on those close
or get up to a bit more mischief

As we laugh snort and cavort
life becomes fun if we caper about

Daily Prompt: Caper

              1. That’s good coming from you ๐Ÿ˜
                But seriously… If everyone around you is getting in the way of you trying to be you… It gets hard and no fun. I guess I have to piss them off…

  1. Hello Kate,
    Well… thank you. I’ve learnt something new today. I have never heard the words ‘caper about’ but after reading your fun and cheerful poem, I looked the word up and it’s a perfect description for your words here ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’

    1. thanks Di I try to describe the word as well as I can as I’m fully aware that for many of my readers English is a second language .. they do so well but learning the meaning of new words is a real joy for me .. didn’t think I could teach an aussie lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I caper, therefore I am. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love this poem! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I was born a caper-er-about-er and I will ALWAYS be one! ๐Ÿ˜›
    But, I’ve met people who don’t like that. Hmmm…I think there must be something wrong with them! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
