Silly Poems and Rhymes #78 – New Year

“Tonight’s December thirty-first,Something is about to burst.The clock is crouching, dark and small,Like a time bomb in the hall.Hark, it’s midnight, children dear.Duck! Here comes another year!”

Silly Poems and Rhymes #77 – Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat could eat no fat,His wife could eat no lean,And so it was between them both,They licked their platters clean.   Thanks to Peter G Millington-Wallace for the reminder.  

Silly Poems and Rhymes #76 – When I die

  When I was young I had a dream,I dreamt of worlds I had not seen. I dreamt I travelled in a beamOf light that shone both blue and green.Now I grow old I swear that IWill travel that way when I die.
