Red Rubber Bands

Round, red, rubber, on the ground she found
Another and another she finds all around
“No more!” says Mother at the red rubber hound
But she sniffs out more without a sound

Soon she has many of these red, rubber hoops
and if I had a penny for every one of these loops
I would be a happy man and watch as she stoops
for more rubber bands with her hands she scoops

I love my little red, rubber band locater
even though my walks get later and later
I have the choice to chastise and berate her
but I choose a smile, for her happiness is greater.
