There was a Young Lady of Wales by Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady of Wales,
Who caught a large fish without scales;
When she lifted her hook,
She exclaimed, 'Only look!'
That ecstatic Young Lady of Wales.

There was a young lad from Dundee by Stuart Macfarlane

There was a young lad from Dundee,
Whose bum was a twin screen TV,
From a mile and a half,
People would laugh,
For the channel control was his knee.

Friends by Stuart Macfarlane

Drain the colour from the rainbow,
Let the stars tumble from the sky,
Mute the birdís morning chorus,
Steal the beauty from the flowers.
All these and more Iíd sacrifice,
And surely would survive.
But friendship . . . .
Not a moment could I bare,
To be without the friends I love.
For they are lifeís true wonders,
Filling my heart, my soul, my senses.
With all the colours of happiness,
With every sight and sound of joy.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

Birthday Wish by Stuart Macfarlane

I met a nice fairy,
On the way home from school,
She granted me a wish,
She knew I was no fool.

I said weekly birthdays,
Would really be great,
For fifty two weeks,
Is too long to wait.

Now presents and presents,
Each week do arrive,
Weíve bought a bigger house,
In fact we bought five,

But the gifts keep on coming,
And thereís no room to store,
At first they were fun,
But now theyíre a bore.

But horror of horrors,
Is the effect upon me,
For Iíve outgrown my parents,
Iím now two hundred and three.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

Pussy can sit by the Fire and Sing by Rudyard Kipling

Pussy can sit by the fire and sing,
Pussy can climb a tree
Or play with a silly old cork and string
To 'muse herself, not me.
But I like Binkie my dog, because
He knows how to behave;
So, Binkie's the same as the First Friend was,
And I am the Man in the Cave!

Pussy will play Man Friday till
It's time to wet her paw
and make her walk on the window-sill
(For the footprint Crusoe saw);
Then she fluffles her tail and mews,
And scratches and won't attend
But Binkie will play whatever I choose,
And he is my true First Friend!

Pussy will rub my knees with her head
Pretending she loves me hard;
But the very minute I go to my bed
Pussy runs out in the yard,
And there she stays till the morning-light;
So I know it is only pretend
And he is my Firstest Friend.
