May, Might, Don’t

May, Might, Don't

Hey, Folks!

How are you?

I’m here today with a quick poem I wrote, and I’d love for you to check it out!

The inspiration came to me when Anna said “never not,” and the rest sprung from there! 🙂

May, Might, Don’t

by Ellie Cummins


Those who say “I never not,”

And then go on to “sometimes don’t”

Have got their tails tied in a knot;

For truly, though they could, they won’t.


Those who don’t will never do

And if they do, they do it never.

Those who will will give a clue,

Those who may think they are clever.


Alas, the don’t‘s, won’t‘s, might‘s and may‘s

Will have to wait another day.

For those who do, wellthey take action.

The doers have the satisfaction.

What do you think? Did this peculiar poetry puzzle you? 

See you next week,
Ellie 🙂

  1. Very interesting,glad Anna gave you the inspiration. Personally I can relate to this poem.For I am a doer. Blessings to youy and happy writing.I am headed to Savannah and Charleston on the 20th. Be back home on the 28. I will let you know about my adventures when I return. How is the selling of the house?
    Blessings to all of you,
    Love Nola A.K.A. Grandma

    1. Haha. Thanks, Grandma Nola! I’d love to hear about your adventures! The house is technically sold, and unless something goes amiss, we should sign off on it on the 25th. We found an adorable house down in South Carolina and the closing will hopefully be on the 27th! I’m so excited. Love you!

    1. I do that, too!

      Oh, and I also wanted to tell you that Mom’s back on FaceBook again, if you ever want to see Cummins family photos and life updates! 🙂

  2. Love this one! You have a “writer’s” brain just filled to the brim with creativity. Each week is a surprise. Just like your music, you are able to use many styles in writing. You can do serious thoughts in essays and prose then pop in a funny limerick or just a fun poem as this one. You brighten my day. Love you. G’ma

  3. “Never Not” is a clever jot
    Which I like a lot…
    That’s all I got!

    Safe travels…come see us anytime you can!
