Guest Writer – Lucille Campolo; Bun Bun



My nine year old Granddaughter, Lucy Campolo, is my latest guest writer. Lucy has written a poem about her lifelong companion, a stuffed lamb named Bun Bun.


Lucy recently recited her poem at a school presentation and did a fantastic job. Yes, Grandpa is very proud of his grandchildren, and super proud of Lucy’s poem and recital.


Please enjoy Bun Bun.  🙂

                                     By Lucille Campolo

Lucy’s cat “Wilson” and Bun Bun are pals like these two!



Dear Bun Bun my lamb,


      I just want you to know that


I love you so much.


     Your soft cozy fluffy fur makes me sleepy.


All these years I’ve had you,

     you smell like a burnt candle.


But you didn’t think that was going to stop me from loving you.


    I love you so much, the graceful lullaby you sing.


You make me feel safe and comfortable.


    I love you so much,


You are white and fluffy.


   I’m sorry about that one time we were painting,


and I got black paint on your foot.


    I love you so much.







Please feel welcome to share Lucy’s poem!
