St Ives

Rating: 3.5


As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with seven wives
Said he, 'I think it's much more fun
Than getting stuck with only one.'

That' the genius of Roald Dahl you never know nor can predict how he is going to end his unique and unforgettable poems, that give so much joy to children and adults alike. May God and Keep you Roald, for you are heaven's gain.
