Laughing Time by William Jay Smith

It was laughing time, and the tall Giraffe
Lifted his head, and began to laugh:


Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!


And the Chimpanzee on the gingko tree
Swung merrily down with a Tee Hee Hee:


Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!


“It’s certainly not against the law!”
Croaked Justice Crow with a loud guffaw:


Haw! Haw! Haw! Haw!


The dancing Bear who could never say “No”
Waltzed up and down on the tip of his toe:


Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!


The Donkey daintily took his paw,
And around they went: Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!


Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!


The Moon had to smile as it started to climb;
All over the world it was laughing time!


Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!
Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Helas by Oscar Wilde

To drift with every passion till my soul
Is a stringed lute on which all winds can play,
Is it for this that I have given away
Mine ancient wisdom, and austere control?
Methinks my life is a twice-written scroll
Scrawled over on some boyish holiday
With idle songs for pipe and virelay,
Which do but mar the secret of the whole.
Surely there was a time I might have trod
The sunlit heights, and from life's dissonance
Struck one clear chord to reach the ears of God.
Is that time dead? lo! with a little rod
I did but touch the honey of romance
And must I lose a soul's inheritance?

Buckingham Palace by A. A. Milne

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
Alice is marrying one of the guard.
'A soldier's life is terrible hard,'
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
We saw a guard in a sentry-box.
'One of the sergeants looks after their socks,'
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
We looked for the King, but he never came.
'Well, God take care of him, all the same,'
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
They've great big parties inside the grounds.
'I wouldn't be King for a hundred pounds,'
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
A face looked out, but it wasn't the King's.
'He's much too busy a-signing things,'
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
'Do you think the King knows all about me?'
'Sure to, dear, but it's time for tea,'
Says Alice.

There was an Old Man of Marseilles by Edward Lear


There was an Old Man of Marseilles,
Whose daughters wore bottle-green veils;
They caught several Fish,
Which they put in a dish,
And sent to their Pa at Marseilles.

There are holes in The Sky by Spike Milligan

There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in
But there ever so small
That's why the rain is thin.
