Randomness Friday - Random Poems from Childhood...

 
Random poems from Childhood...
Eletelephony
Once there was an elephant
Who tried to use the telephant
Oh no, I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone
(Dear me, I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right)
How'ere it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk
The more he tried to get it free
The louder buzzed the telephee
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong)
-Laura Richards 
The Little Girl
There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good
She was very good indeed
But when she was bad, she was horrid.
-Anon

Old Mother Hubbard
Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To give the poor dog a bone;
When she came there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.
She went to the baker's
To buy him some bread;
When she came back
The dog was dead.
She went to the undertaker's
To buy him a coffin;
When she came back
The dog was laughing.
She took a clean dish
To get him some tripe;
When she came back
He was smoking a pipe.
She went to the fruiterer's
To buy him some fruit;
When she came back
He was playing the flute.
She went to the tailor's
To buy him a coat;
When she came back
He was riding a goat.
She went to the hatter's
To buy him a hat;
When she came back
He was feeding the cat.
She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig;
When she came back
He was dancing a jig.
She went to the cobbler's
To buy him some shoes;
When she came back
He was reading the news.
She went to the seamstress
To buy him some linen;
When she came back
The dog was spinning.
She went to the hosier's
To buy him some hose;
When she came back
He was dressed in his clothes.
The dame made a curtsy,
The dog made made a bow;
The dame said, "Your servant,"
The dog said, "Bow-wow."

Love the poems!!!

Thank you so much for fixing the comments! I had wanted to post the below text sooner, but I could never do the word verification

The banner- I really love the colors, the font, basically everything, but I can't put it up as a candidate for being an official banner of RF unless the link is right.

You have the text missing an "a"

agirlofmanycolors.blogspot.com

The link to my blog is correct, but the text isn't. No biggie, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd fix it so I could post that beautiful, creative banner on RF next Fri!

God Bless,
