My Trusty iPad

I was given a little iPad and I use it all the time

It’s protected in a case that’s the colour of ruby wineiPad

I use it to play Scrabble and that other Word game

And check my many messages time and time again

I also update and download the latest offer of apps

They range from daily reminders to altered global maps

I can’t be behind the times, oh shudder, or perish the thought

Otherwise my efforts might as well be all for nought

I read the hourly news or tune into the trio “Il Voloil_volo_eurofestival-750x387

And can watch one-day cricket, or even water polo

Shazam is a dream if I need the title of a song

And the elusive artist’s name appears in under a minute long

I can explore the movie offers and buy my tickets online

Or Google questions that are puzzling or check out where to dine

My photos can be synced to albums and my tours can be planned

From a quick ferry trip to Manly or fly overseas to Japancherryblossomjapan

I can even talk to friends here or to family overseas

Everything’s on offer, it’s easy and such a breeze

Is there anything my iPad can’t do, I wonder in a daze

It’s all there, it’s magical and I’m happy and amazed

If only it could iron, wash and cook or even clean

My life would be a fairy tale, it would certainly be a dream

In fact, if it did all that and also gave birth too

I would stop in a heartbeat and happily say “I do!”

I had fun with this poem! If you enjoyed it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

  1. How funny! Yes, technology is taking over the world and not always in a bad way. Congratulations on a great relationship, ha, ha!


  2. I’m afraid I’m a bit of a Luddite and only use a desk top which does all that I ask of it. But I am sure if I tried a laptop or ipad I would find either of them equally as good if not better – just might go for it one day but I guess its a touch of jam yesterday, jam tomorrow but never jam today.


    • That’s funny Michael! Jam with cream? That reminds me of an article I read today – Nigella is adamant that scones should be served with cream and topped with jam. I don’t mind however it comes as long as it has both jam and cream. Lol! 😋

    Hahahahaha I laughed so hard Wendy, but wouldn’t it be nice if it could iron and wash our clothes too…I say go ahead and say your I dos, such a great device


  4. Nigella has it wrong – jam on the bottom every time I’m that kind of guy. And tell me, if an ipad gets married will it live in herpad?


    • Of course! The iPad will hopefully live up to its promise and continue with the proverbial ‘happy ever after!’ 🤗 Lol! Thank you for your funny comment and for stopping by Michael.


  5. Creatively funny. Thanks Wendy for making me smile.

  8. When I got my laptop, I felt like I had been given the greatest gift on earth. The 15 year old inside me can’t believe that I actually have it. I love computers anyway but a laptop, well that is like living in the “lap” of luxury especially since it is an Apple. I’m not sure which I love more my husband or my laptop. Guess it should be my husband because he was the one that insisted I have it.😂 Great post, you hit it out of the park!

  9. I have a iPad mini but don’t know how to do all those things. *sigh* I do agree it’s a wonderful invention.

    • Lol! I love your blog ‘name.’ I should have also added that the iPad is portable and can be taken anywhere, anytime and via any means. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. 🌹


  10. My trusty iPad was also a gift and I’m enjoying it more and more. Glad you like yours too even if it can’t do everything. 😉


  11. All the photos on my blog were taken with my iPad mini. I only know how to do that and read books on my Kindle app. I have email but I don’t like reading it on the iPad. I do love this device and wish I’d take the time to learn more.

  12. I really like my iPad. I feel the same way too.
    But I think your case is ruby, whereas mine is sapphire blue.

    (Actually, my iPad case is brown, but that didn’t rhyme.)
