POEM FOR CHILDREN: Blue Moon

Blue Moon

 

When the moon is blue

here’s what you do:

grab some branches

grab some glue

and build the world’s tallest tickle stick

and tickle that moon

till it’s tickle-sick.

 

That does the trick!

A Banana

How can a

banana

be glowing up dere

so golden

and bold in

da night?

 

Dere must be

a monkey

who lugged it up dere

who licked it

and sticked it

on tight.

                                         

From Monkey Shines, an unpublished collection of night-themed children's poetry.

 

THE MOONLESS NIGHT

Oh, please.

Oh, please!

The moon’s not cheese.

It’s golden-crumbling,

tummy-rumbling,

crispy-flaking,

hungry-making,

butter-fluffy,

oven-puffy,

rich and tasty

PASTRY!

 

How do I know?

Where’d the moon go?

Well….

 

You’re right to be suspicious –

it was delicious!
