The Grasshopper


The grasshopper wore a jersey
Prayed to the God Almighty
And tried to jump on to the moon!
The moon, the moon,
He tried to jump on to the moon!
He landed somewhere
Though he did not know exactly where
But it was on a farmer’s thatched roof!
The roof! The roof! The roof!
It was on a farmer’s roof!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
