Walking in a UX Wonderland

By Peter Hornsby

This poem was inspired by the lyrics of the song Winter Wonderland—music by Felix Bernard and lyrics by Richard B. Smith.

Alerts ring; are you listening?
On the screen, widgets glistening.
A beautiful site,
Our client’s happy tonight,
Walking in a UX wonderland.

Gone away is their old cruft,
Here to stay is our new stuff.
They love our new way.
They’re happy to pay.
Walking in a UX wonderland.

On the whiteboard, we can draw new concepts.
We’ve lots of notions we can kick around.
We’ll have lots of fun exploring contexts,
Until our best ideas get shot down.

Later on, we’ll aspire,
As we test, on Kindle Fire.
To top of the line,
Responsive design,
Walking in a UX wonderland.

When sites go live, ain’t it thrilling,
People come; what are they feeling?
We’ll test and refine, our UX design,
Walking in a UX wonderland.

Walking in a UX wonderland,
Walking in a UX wonderland.
