    Whenever I think of rhyming poetry, I think of Stephen Katona's sweetly rhyming verse. His poems, mostly on animals make me think of the illustrious 'animal poet'... Ted Hughes' poems. Stephen has created a parallel world of animals where they are understanding, clever, compassionate and intelligent as human beings. His poems are simple and sweet, enriched with positivity and edifying thoughts. Besides being a poet, he is a born cartoonist. I wish him greater success in the ensuing years!

Best Poem of Stephen Katona

Hansel And Gretel

The real Hansel and Gretel story,
Is far less gory.
True, their father cut wood,
But no more than he should,
For he loved all the trees,
And creatures including bees.
Their mother went away,
Simply for a holiday.
Now here comes the nasty part,
Two sisters each with an evil heart.
One was a dentist,
It's true I insist.
The other liked to make,
Lots of sweets and cake.
They cried, "We have a perfect plan,
We'll invite all the children we can,
And give them lots of sugary treats,
They'll never be able to resist our sweets.
