NaPoWriMo Poem #26: A Panda And Me

26 04 2014

 A very cute little panda,
High up a bamboo tree,
Eating soft bamboo shoots,
While looking down at me.

Soon it was too full,
It could not come down,
I climbed up to help,
But I tumbled upside down.

Oh, my dear what should I do?
Little panda, how can I help you?
I took a ladder, and up I go,
I save the panda and it says thank you.

The Royal Mail has released a 10-stamp collection celebrating Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of British sovereigns since 1837.
The set includes six stamps featuring the changing exterior of the building through the ages, commissioned by Royal Mail from artist Chris Draper.
There is also a miniature sheet of four stamps with photographs of four opulent locations inside the 775-room palace – the Throne Room, the Blue Drawing Room, the Grand Staircase and the Green Drawing Room.
