Little Jack Horner by Anonymous

Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner,
Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plumb,
And said, 'What a good boy am I!'

On a Cat Ageing by Alexander Gray

He blinks upon the hearth-rug,
and yawns in deep content,
accepting all the comforts
that Providence has sent.

Louder he purrs, and louder,
in one glad hymn of praise
for all the night's adventures,
for quiet, restful days.

Life will go on for ever,
with all that cat can wish:
warmth and the glad procession
of fish and milk and fish.

Only-the thought disturbs him-
he's noticed once or twice,
the times are somehow breeding
a nimbler race of mice.

Why by Spike Milligan

American Detectives
Never remove their hats
When investigating murders
In other people's flats.

P.S. Chinese Tecs
Are far more dreaded!
And they always appear
Bare-headed!


= = = = = = = = = =



Remember by Christina Rosetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Sister Trouble by Stuart Macfarlane

Tomorrow is my birthday,
And Iíll be forty-four,
But I have an awful secret,
Never told before.

When I was only nine or ten,
And only half my height,
I put a frog in my sisterís bed,
Which gave her such a fright.

I never told a single soul,
In case I got a chiding,
So keep my awful secret please,
ĎCos, even now, Iím still in hiding!
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)
