Trolls - Poem by Angela Wybrow
In the Forest of Shadows, there can be found
Creatures whose arms stretch down to the ground.
These creatures of the Forest are known as Trolls,
And if they catch you, they'll swallow you whole.
These creatures stalk about in the dead of night,
And, believe me, they don't make a pretty sight.
Some have only one eye, while others have two,
But DO NOT approach them, whatever you do!
These creatures have legs that are short and stumpy,
And their bodies, like boulders, are big and bumpy.
The colour of their skin is a kind of mottled grey;
Trust me, you wouldn't want to get in their way!
In the centre of their face sits a big, bulbous nose,
And, on their two feet, there are three massive toes.
They have rotting teeth and really bad breath -
Catch one whiff and you'll be choking to death!
These creatures emit a really terrifying roar:
It's unlike any sound that you've heard before.
You can hear them coming from miles away,
But, whatever you do, you must not stay.
You'll feel the earth shudder under your feet:
That is your moment to beat a hasty retreat.
You may wish to see one with your own eyes,
But, mark my words, that really wouldn't be wise!
