An old golden book.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines nonsense as, “words or language having no meaning or conveying no intelligible ideas; language, conduct, or an idea that is absurd or contrary to good sense; an instance of absurd action.
Nonsense has correct grammatical composition and spelling; however, the words are not put together in a normal order.”
I love nonsense. I am always writing it down. It helps me concentrate, and I refer to my nonsense writing for inspiration and motivation. I laugh and wonder what was going through my mind when I wrote the masterpiece.
If you ask me, I’d say “nonsense” is great for the imagination and creativity.
My all time favorite nonsense is from the Anthology of Children’s Literature, a book I cherish and treasure. It’s a bit beaten up but I have learned so much from this book.
Mr. Punchinello from Tom Tiddler’s Ground; a Book of Poetry for Children
Mother, I want to be married
To Mister Punchinello,
To Mister Punch, to Mister Chin,
To Mister Nell, to Mister Lo,
Pun- Chin- Nell-Lo,
To Mister Punchinello!
Here is one of mine.
“When I was a Girl Guide I learned to make fire; I came to Canada and discovered Canadian Tire.”
Keep on writing, even if it is pure nonsense.
