But when I'm on my back again, I watch the Croydon aeroplane That flies across to France, and sings Like hitting thick piano-strings. Making it lively with examples. tony

And of course Hilaire Belloc to add to Roald Dahl.

The late great Roald Dahl must surely have read this and been influenced by it.

Agree. Modern life is all about ppl who couldn't understand pieces like this, and yet those dumbs are allowed to share their poor opinions

wow so sweet to read this poem- And just go zooming round and round, And frighten Nursey with the sound, And see the angel-side of clouds, And spit on all those motor-crowds!

Our garden is not very wide And cars go by on either side, And make an angry-hooty noise That rather startles little boys. Nice lines, beautiful work.

A very palatable poem both the technique and choice of words.The music is also pleasing to the ear.It shows to poet how to write poems from the vantage point of a child or the like!

Born! Growing up; First as a Child. To face the pains of life. Nice work.

Exactly why Kipling was a master! What a wonderful poem, written in the mind of a child - who wishes to impishly scare nursey with the sound of his imaginary airplane - which he would probably never grow old enough to fly. I can not think of a more lovely, quaint, yet emotionally sad backdrop for a poem...... Absolutely wonderful. On the outskirts of the county I grew up in is a turn of the 20th century building - beautiful - though now abandoned. During the early part of the 20th century it served as our Tuberculosis hospital. TB was looked upon as contagious as Ebola might be today, and any child contracting the disease had a great likelihood of dying from it.
