Grandads Knee

Grandads Knee

My granddaddy always said to me 
You wait until your thirty three 
You'll have some little'uns of your own
Your little princess or prince will sit upon this throne, 
This throne that's reserved just for you
Till childhood fairyland bids adieu.                                                      

So upon his knee I'd clumsily scramble,
Listening to his stories and rambles, 
His stories were off  far of lands, 
Of fairy queens, her kingdom and commands, 
The only wish he had for me 
Was I be as happy as happy as I could be.

On his throne that was his knee,
My childhood was like a fantasy, 
No seat ever has replaced that spot
That I'd climb upon as a tiny, tiny, tot 
Perhaps if grandaddies knees  were the law 
I'd still see my fantasy lands of wonder and awe

Nonsense A Go Go 
In the middle of the Congo,
Lives a very hairy mango 
Who strums upon a human banjo. 
While the ultra slim thin rhinos 
Dance a street dance fandango, 
Circled by short legged flamingos
Screaming house, playing bingo!
Waiting for the mummified Pharaoh
To tiptoe through for a tango,
All partying together in their tropical a go go !

A Fairy Is Born

A Fairy Is Born 

Blow the bubbles, 
And look carefully 
Can you see 
The delicate wing of a little fairy ?

For every time a bubble is created 
The mummy fairies giggle,all excited 
Cos they have waited and waited, 
For the magical soapy bubbles to be sighted !

Look at the bubbles can't you see 
The birthing of a tiny fairy 
      The rainbow colours dancing in the light 
Are the tiny wings of a little sprite!

So blowing bubbles isn't just for fun 
It's the start of a fairies life 
 That's only just begun 
So blow your bubbles and you will see 
The tiny delicate wings, 

Of a brand new fairy! 



An Elephant looked out upon a darkened sky
He closed his eyes and muttered my, oh my !
Shaking and quaking in his boots,
His trunk couldn't help making  involuntary toots.

A friendly little likeable pooch
Was taking a leisurely lonely mooch,
When suddenly he jumped high,oh so high!
As he heard the elephants deafening tooting cry.

The little pooch headed towards the hullabaloo,
 He met the humongous Elephant,
And thought what to do, what to do?
He wasn't frightened or wasn't scared.

He guided the elephant and showed he cared,
Strengths are different within us big and small
But working together make even the smallest of us tall.

The Jungle Beat

The Jungle Beat 

Marvin The Monkey had  wander lust, 
To forsake his home, 
Find his Love for music was a must. 

He packed for a safari, 
animated gifsanimated gifsTaking his secret weapons, 
His musical bananas Cheeky and Charlie. 

They trudged miles to the beach, 
To recreate the sound, 
Of the jungle beat.  

Cheeky and Charlie their guitars, they did strum, 
Marvin used coconuts. 
To play Like a drum.

Free Animations
The sounds they made were so cool, 
Soon they were begged,
To open a rock school.

So Marvin ,Cheeky and Charlie, 
Worked hard at what they loved, 
And lived their lives happily !

Not A Purple People Eater

Not a Purple People Eater 

I'm not a purple people eater, 
My diet is much ,much cheaper, 
I'm a creature that lurks in your mind,
Just colour the purple within the lines, 
Take chalk, crayons or what ever you wish. 
All thoughts of horrid monsters will be banished, 
You can hang me on your wall,
Where I'll protect you from all things creepy, 
Until your eyes gently close,
 Then you'll feel safe
 Sleepy !


Just say cheese
Please Oh Please 
A cheesy grin 
It's not a sin 
To make a smile 
It's not a trial 
just wait for the flash 
then you can dash 
of to play 
for the rest of the day 
just say cheese please 
all mummies and daddies 
will make this plea 
Just say Cheese...... pleaseeeeee !!!!

A Fairy Tale

A Fairy Tale 
Margaret Bednar

Marshmallow clouds in a vanilla sky 
Surround a sugar castle
The colour of cherry pie 
At it's door there stands proud, 
Unicorns who have vowed 
To protect the fairies
Who come to play 
With the buzzing bees
That dance and buzz all day. 

Within the pink sugar castle. 
A princess excitedly awaits 
Her prince charming 
To arrive for their dinner date 
Where  penguins on skates 
Serve their meal off ice crystal plates
The skinny little crickets will play their wings 
Making summer music 
While love birds chirp along and sing.

Prince charming will kneel 
Take his Princess by her delicate hand, 
He'll ask her then to be Queen in this wonderful fairy land 
The buzzing bees and fairies will dance 
While those magical unicorns will daintily prance 
In the garden of their sugar candy castle 
Found in the fluffy marshmallow clouds
Where only very, very, happy fairy tales are allowed !

Dreamy Dragons

Dreamy Dragons 
Natasha Head 

                                       The last two baby dragons 
That roamed the earth, 
Only blew fire of lava for mirth, 
Without big grown up dragons there to help 
They feasted upon only fruits, candy and kelp, 
Every day they frolicked around and jousted, 
Their wickedness diluted, slowly ousted, 
 The red,hot raging, fire that they breathed, 
Diminished daily as they teethed
Their skin that was very, very, dry and glum 
Turned bright, beautiful, rainbow colours that were fun 
So the fire breathing beasties of the past, 
Those bad ones were never ever going to last. 
Now all the dragons in our minds, 
Are now beautiful,colourful and kind!  
Breathing only stardust and moon beams
Popping up only in our fairy tales and favourite dreams! 

Pippa The Posing Penguin

Pippa The Posing Penguin 

Pippa the penguin dreamt every night
Of little sprites that weren't black or white
They usually danced and pranced
In and around her bed
Sprinkling  stardust occasionally upon her head
Then one very, very, snowy, snowy night
Pippas dream seem different real, somehow bright!
The little sprites who weren't black and white,
Sprinkled the stardust up and down and all around,
      They got all together and made Pippa laugh like a clown,
They tickled her toes,
her tail ,flippers
and then her nose
The stardust stuck and created a sensation
Pippa was a star in her snowy,snowy nation
 In her two tone world of black and white
Pippa was front page news overnight !

Cool Mountain Cats

Cool Mountain Cats 

Conrad a crazy cool cat,
Thought he was so cool,
He'd race down a mountain,
Without going splat.

Chemmy the sno bunny
Offered him advice,
She told him to turn,
  Watch out for ice!

Conrad who always  knew better
Skied downhill straight
Down, down
He flew till it was too late!

Conrad the crazy cool cat,

Had not listen 
The mountain was icy and steep 
He landed at the bottom in a heap
A sore and meowing splat 
Conrad the embarrassed silly cat 

Chemmy the sno bunny, 
Snow plowed and turned,
Skied down and returned,
Again and again, 
She felt such a thrill
Conquering the hill! 

 So who was the coolest cat on the mountain 
That day ?

Why ?

 WHY ?

Mummy why can't I plant my tree 
Where my Prince Charming 
Will Marry me 

Mummy why can't I Plant my tree
Where all the magic fairies dance
To the buzzing of the  honey bees 


Mummy why can't I plant my tree
In a land of green 
Where everyone is free                                
WHY ?                                                                                                            

Mummy why can't I plant my tree
Where purple dragons roam and snore 
They'd be so gentle no-one would flee 

Mummy I want to plant my tree
With Daddys spade 
In my red welly boots 
 Just you and me!
