To open my emails was a delight today. My wonderful friend had written a third poem for William's story book. He is happy to stick monster stickers all over the pages and I am happy to read these poems over and over again.... The perfect bedtime recipe.
A MONSTER ADVENTUREOne little monster said"I want to have a talk,We're getting very lazy, we must go for a walk".They all sat up and nodded and jumping to the floorThey tumbled down the stairs and out the front door.One behind the other they trotted down the lane,Squealing with laughter when it began to rain.Down by the river they hunted for a boatAnd heaved in a log to see if it would float.They all clambered on and sitting legs astridePaddled down the river-what a wonderful ride!They saw elves and fairies with gossamer wings,Heard how magically a nightingale sings.They saw graceful swans gliding, bright silver fish leaping,From mother's safe nest fluffy ducklings were peeping.Wild flowers aplenty in glorious bloom,But then came the thunder-oh what a boom!The boat toppled over and in they all went,Bedraggled they spluttered "Let's go make a tent!"They made a good shelter under the treesWith fern fronds and moss, and sat huddling their knees.Although the adventure had been such a delightThey all now were looking a soggy wet sight.Slowly each one thought of William's warm bed,So cosy, so snuggly with a place for each head.All in agreement they wended their wayBack to the quilt which is where they would stay.
P.S. That is until next time ofcourse!
She says she is monstered out now after writing three poems for William . I am not surprised.
I am going to stick all the poems and songs in a book just for William. What a wonderful friend.
