Two Monkeys (Poems for Children)

Night descended and a monkey fell asleep
But in the depth of night he woke up with a scream,
In his sleep he saw a horrible dream
His fruits were been stolen by a wily old thief.

On waking up he yelled at a monkey fast asleep,
Get up you wicked, old seasoned thief
I just now saw you stealing my fruits
Now don’t pretend to be asleep, you old brute!

The other monkey on waking up said with a yawn
You are the biggest fool ever to be born
I was about to steal some diamonds and precious gems
But you woke me up before I could get them!

    I actually enjoyed this one. Like prasanna said it could be children or adults but the idea for you was directed towards children. When I read this it reminded me that just because you are awake to the reality of our world and may have lost hope in dreaming doesn't mean you have to wake me up from my dream because I still have hope, maybe not everyone but I have hope that some will dream big and continue to push forward until they have no breath left within their being. Nicely done.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
