Poppy and Moppy

One day soon, so soon, thought Poppy
I'll walk and walk on the moon with Moppy
"She's funny and strange! " said Poppy
"So weird she has three pegs for legs."

"Oh dear, oh dear, my dear! " Said Mummy
"It's funny, so funny, so pleasant and sunny
Have some bread and runny honey."
"Please! " said she, "three slices for me".

Poppy and Moppy felt so glad
They ran and ran and hopped and had
Cabbage for luncheon - ever so mad
Not cat, nor rat so black and fat.

Moppy hopped and hopped and hopped
Three legs had she, and slopped and slopped
Don't worry said Mummy and up she mopped
The cup of ink she'd had to drink.

"Poppy, come back now from the moon! "
Up called Mummy, so soon, so soon.
Down, down in a maroon balloon
"Time for bed instead" she said……

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
