If You Should Meet a Crocodile

If you should meet a crocodile
Do not take a stick and poke him
Ignore the welcome in his smile
Be careful not to stroke him
For as he sleeps upon the Nile
He thinner gets and thinner
And wherever you meet a crocodile
He is ready for his dinner
Anon.

Night Ride

When I can’t sleep
I shut my door
And sit on the rug
On my bedroom floor.
I open the window.
I close my eyes
And say magic words
Till my carpet flies.
Zooming over gardens,
Chasing after bats,
Hooting like an owl
And frightening the cats.
Then when I feel sleepy
And dreams are in my head,
I fly back through my window
And snuggle down in bed.
Celia Warren

Dinosaur Dreams

Dinah Shore
dreamed she saw a dinosaur
knock on the window with its claw.
Dinah Shore
dreamed she saw a dinosaur
peeping round her bedroom door.
Dinah Shore
dreamed she saw a dinosaur
sleeping on the kitchen floor.
Dinah Shore
dreamed she saw a dinosaur
wake up and give a mighty ROAR!
John Foster

 
 
 

Night Sounds

When I lie in bed
I think I can hear
The stars being switched on
I think I can.
And I think I can hear
The moon
Breathing.
But I have to be still
So still.
All the house is sleeping
Except for me.
Then I think I can hear it.
Berlie Doherty
