Contagion by Spike Milligan

Elephants are contagious!
Be careful how you tread.
An Elephant that's been trodden on
Should be confined to bed!

Leopards are contagious too.
Be careful tiny tots.
They don't give you a temperature
But lots and lots - of spots.

The Herring is a lucky fish
From all disease inured.
Should he be ill when caught at sea;
Immediately - he's cured!

The Cat That Walked by Himself by Rudyard Kipling

'He will kill mice, and he will be kind to babies when he is in the house, just as long as they do not pull his tail too hard. But when he has done that, and between times, and when the moon gets up and night comes, he is the Cat that walks by himself, and all places are alike to him. Then he goes out to the Wet Wild Woods or up the Wet Wild Trees or on the Wet Wild Roofs, waving his wild tail and walking by his wild lone.'

Rudyard Kipling

The Christening by A. A. Milne

What shall I call
My dear little dormouse?
His eyes are small,
But his tail is e-nor-mouse.

I sometimes call him Terrible John,
'Cos his tail goes on -
And on -
And on.
And I sometimes call him Terrible Jack,
'Cos his tail goes on to the end of his back.
And I sometimes call him Terrible James,
'Cos he says he likes me calling him namesÖ
But I think I shall call him Jim,
'Cos I am fond of him.

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)

Horse Whispers by Stuart Macfarlane

Come to the wild side,
Come to the wild side,
Come run in freedom,
Come chase the wind,
The stars in the heavens,
The ever green plane,
Come run in freedom,
Come run with us.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)
