The well is deep but the water’s sweet
And the bucket includes a ladle
In case you just want a sip
Or have some for the table
The water’s ice cold so unless your bold
I’d heat some for that bath
And whoever puts some down your back
Had better watch out for your wrath

Lol. Well said! A ladle of cold water down the back would likely incur just about ANYone’s wrath, methinks.
There’s just something about well water that always seems colder than all the rest.
I adore this poem! Thanks for the read
Clever way to use the prompt! I love the line of defense at the end, so true~
I enjoyed it!
Glad you liked it; thanks.
Yes well water is so much better (unless you discover water snakes in your well like my dad did once) eewwwww!
Water snakes? Doesn’t sound like something I’d want anything to do with.
