Disney Days

Below is one of my children's poems called 'Disney Days'.

DISNEY DAYS

Warmer than a Sheep Dog hug
or happiness rolled in a rug;
dancing dizzy Dulux joy,
whirls and swirls and shouts ‘Ahoy!’

Brighter than a scientist,
the artist’s pallet shines and skips.
Free from Greenwich Mean Time days,
they demonstrate their West End ways.​

Talent dazzles, beaming light
into the insides of o...

The World

The beings in this world, are so different,
Some own many houses, some struggle to even rent.

Oh, such beautiful animals on this planet!
Such wonders you will never forget,
some tall, some stubby.
Some skinny and small,some plump and chubby!

Oh this world, is filled with wonder
Up, up high, and deep, deep under!

When its winter, cold winds blow,
In monsoon, the rivers overflow.

THE BALLAD OF THE QUACKING OWL

entry picture

If you’re walking by the bushes

at the end of the lane

you may hear a little quack

as the sun begins to wane.

 

You may look for the water

where the ducks might be,

but there’s no-one in sight

just the rustling of the leaves.

 

Would you believe

the quack that you heard

was the sound of an owl,

a sad little bird.

 

“A quacking owl?”

I hear you exclai...

THE BALLAD OF THE SIGHING BEAR

entry picture

In the deep dark woods

lived a great brown bear,

he was seven feet tall

but the townsfolk didn’t care

for although the bear was huge

and had fangs and long sharp claws,

all the people would make fun of him

and point out his big flaw.

 

Have you ever met a bear

who had nothing much to say,

who couldn’t even growl

when he came outside to play?

Well, Bob was his...

TERENCE THE TORTOISE

entry picture

My friend Terrence

was a little happy sole,

he didn't need a kennel,

nor a house or a hole.

 

His home was a shell

that he carried on his back,

so that all he had to do

was drop down on the track.

 

Then he'd pull his head inside,

followed by his legs and feet

and he’d look inside the fridge

for something tasty to eat.

 

If it started raining

or got ...

THE BALLAD OF THE BALD HEDGEHOG

entry picture

Have you ever heard the tale
about the hedgehog with no spikes,
such a sweet little boy
who all the other’s didn’t like?

A case of alopecia,
there was nothing they could do,
such a sad little hedgehog
who cried and cried, “Boo-Hoo”.

But soon the lad grew older,
he wanted to look more lush
so onto his back he tied himself
a little scrubbing brush.

His friends, well they just laugh...

THE BALLAD OF THE FRIGHTENED EAGLE

entry picture

You'll often see them running

and chasing across the plains,

a rabbit skipping and laughing

at an eagle, in great pains.

 

But why's the eagle running,

surely he can fly?

Sadly he’s afraid of heights

and frightened he may die.

 

An eagle that can't fly,

well surely that's not right,

it's just like having an owl

who won't come out at night.

 

But then on...

What Monster?

Just a bit of fun, these poems are used in my work as part of a project using monsters as a way of inspiring young people to share an enthusiasm for writing. Can you identify the six mystery monsters?

 

More than just the sum of his parts

this monster stole another's heart

and his hands and feet as well

not much is his as you can tell

his head is screwed on firmly

by the bolts...

A caterpillar's tale

 

Today I am a caterpillar, I am knobbly and green,
I cut that path through the leaf behind me, it shows you where I've been.
I crawl slowly on my belly and I am rubbery like jelly,
And if I should slip from this here cabbage, I might end up somewhere smelly.
 
But soon I will go through changes, that you would not believe,
I'll say goodbye for a while to the cabbage...

We Visited A Rainbow

WE VISITED A RAINBOW

 

We visited a rainbow

at school the other day.

Every colour said hello

except for gloomy grey.

 

We visited a rainbow,

and used its arch to slide,

then when it started raining,

we used the arch to hide.

 

We visited a rainbow,

but never saw its gold.

Our teacher said it’s locked away,

but we think it’s been sold.

The Macabre Castle

entry picture
The Macabre Castle
 
The macabre castle stood on the hill
Long since forgotten as though time stood still
 
Just close your eyes now and picture this scene
A castle so scary no Childs ever been
 
The sun doesn’t’t shine on its great grey cold walls
And even the battlements look lonely in the rain as it falls
 
And the drawbridge resembles the teeth of...

My Dragon

entry picture

 

My Dragon
 
A dragon lives beneath my bed, it hides there through the day
It waits until I’m all alone and all the adults gone away
 
Then at the bottom of the bed, I see its tail, uncoiling round and round
Then some golden wings, a slender neck, as if its coming out the ground
 
Its eyes are red and its breathing smoke and its teeth are sharp and shiny

Four Leaf Clover

entry picture

 

Four Leaf Clover
 
I saw two leprechauns last night
Doing a dance around our garden light
 
So I snook out the front, and down our back alley
with my hood pulled up just like a scally
 
Scaled next doors fence, then over ours
with a fishing net and two jam jars
 
Then I crept up…..I caught the two
They didn’t know just what to do

I believe in fairies
 
I believe in fairies!…… don’t tell me that you don’t?
You don’t believe in fairies?…… Is it that you don’t?…. Or wont?
 
Yes I believe in goblins, trolls and fairies
And pink and yellow polkerdot canaries
 
I believe in wizards and dragons and magic
And fairytales both joyful and…….. tragic
 
I can conjure them in my own mind
See them...

A Mouses Tale

A ​Mouses Tale But it's not my fault, cried the mouse in dismay. I knew where I was going, though it was far, far away. Sat at the foot of my bed, with his hands beneath his head, He tried, through his tears, to relate what is here... I set out early this morn, after nibbling on some corn, For my breakfast, on the cob is best. I was planning to go to "The Great Mouse Show". A long...
