    Mark, We do get carried away, sometimes. But, sometimes "toots" on the wall stick. Or, is that mud?

    'Tooted' does not instantly make me think of fart. I'm too mature for that (snicker). No, seriously. I think it works. Hop is a school dance. Still is..( my son went to several).

    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Jive talking [slang] : To speak to someone in an exaggerated, teasing way...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Well, my granddaughters do not say "hop" for dance. So, just how old are your children, Kevin? LOL. I have no objection to use of "hop" in this poem, as it fits the era. Let those ignorant of it google stuff like I must.

    Hop is fine, tooted I didn't like but thought it might be a cultural difference. Can not ever image a father "tooting" - for me tooted is soft and weak. A child toots on a toy bugle, a man makes it blare/blast/scream/etc. but then maybe thats all my John and Betty books.
