3 kid’s poems: Bystanders or The Ballad of Toby Dan, Ogres and Trolls, The Little Boat

BYSTANDERS or the BALLAD OF TOBY DAN

Poor Toby Dan
he kicked a can
and it kicked back

poor Toby Grundy
“What’s so funny?”

poor Toby Daph
just had to laugh

poor Toby Don
“What’s going on?”

poor Toby Dalling
heard his mother calling

poor Toby Down
just looked around

poor Toby Spin
scratched his shin

poor Toby Limbo
stood arms akimbo

poor Toby Round
jumped up and down

poor Toby June
jumped o’er the Moon

poor Toby Pies
darted his eyes

poor Toby Tish
ran off with a dish

poor Toby Proud
managed the crowd

poor Toby Bubble
looked o’re his shoulder

poor Toby Riot
just kept quiet.

OGRES AND TROLLS

Ogres and Trolls
Ogres and Trolls
the meadow is empty
but the forest is full

Ogres and Trolls
Ogres and Trolls
the day is empty
but the night is full

THE LITTLE BOAT

the little boat
tugs at it’s rope
anxious to sail
the open sea
