Delilah had a runny nose,
that made her cough and sneeze.
It was quite red and sniffley,
because of allergies.

Day and night her nose would run.
It caused her such disgrace.
Until one day her runny nose,
just ran right off her face.

It leaped into her lap and then
it hopped onto the floor.
Delilah watched her own nose make
a bee-line for the door.

It’s been a while and time has passed,
since her nose was set free.
Delilah doesn’t mind at all,
There’s no more allergy!

It just might take a leap of faith to buy this story of a leaping nose, but the Illustration Friday theme this week is “Leap,” so what recourse did I have?
