Dream Children

The Dream Children ?

Lie still, O my baby, and listen, and listen ! To the song of the Dream Children coming to you ;

Far off through the darkness we see their oars glisten as they row softly over Sleep's beautiful sea.

                                   They are coming to you, they are coming to you.

Lie still, O may baby, and listen, and listen !


There ! hush you, my baby ; and rocking and rocking, far out on the waves of the beautiful sea,

We may hear the Dream Children a-talking and talking of all the sweet things they are bringing for you.

                                    From over the sea, they are coming to you.

While out on the waves we go rocking and rocking !


So rest thee, my baby, lie still on your pillow, the breath of the Dream Children blows over you.

They catch you, they kiss you, on each shining billow, as they paddle their boat over Sleep's rosy sea.

                                      I give you, I send you, the dream children tend you.

You go to sleep on the sail of your pillow.

Blue Midnight StarThe A B C Blue Midnight Star

Blue Midnight StarBy Spike MilliganBlue Midnight Star

'Twas midnight in the schoolroom
And every desk was shut
When suddenly from the alphabet
Was heard a loud "Tut-Tut!"

Said
A to B, "I don't like C;
His manners are a lack.
For all I ever see of C
Is a semi-circular back!"

"I disagree," said
D to B,
"I've never found C so.
From where I stand he seems to be
An uncompleted O."

C was vexed, "I'm much perplexed,
You criticise my shape.
I'm made like that, to help spell Cat
And Cow and Cool and Cape."

"He's right" said E; said F, "Whoopee!"
Said G, " 'Ip, 'Ip, 'ooray!"
"You're dropping me," roared H to G.
"Don't do it please I pray."

"Out of my way," LL said to K.
"I'll make poor
I look ILL."
To stop this stunt J stood in front,
And presto! ILL was JILL.

"U know," said V, "that W
Is twice the age of me.
For as a Roman V is five
I'm half as young as he."

X and Y yawned sleepily,
"Look at the time!" they said.
"Let's all get off to beddy byes."
They did, then "Z-z-z."

Phew that took some writing out let alone finding the images, but I am sure you love all these little rhymes, I don't know who wrote it but I seem to remember something similar that was written in a German rhyme book.

 Diddilydeedot's Dreamland
This Baby is called William


William James going to London Town :)William James

They used to call him "Baby dear" -
Now he has other names;
They'e put him into trousers,
and they call him William James.

He means to walk to London Town
To see what he can see;
But he has only reached the gate,
When it was time for tea.

"I think our William James has grown up some more, but now
he has an idea of going farther than London this time!"


A Chip off the Old BlockI'll  climb the masts.....

I'm only FIVE but soon I'll be
A British sailor on the sea ;
On Daddy's ship I mean to sail
To fight the foe and brave the gale.

When I am SIX I'll try to learn
Which is the bow and which the stern ;
I'll climb the masts, and fire the guns,
And live on chocolate and buns.

Like Crusoe in a caveWhen I am EIGHT - that is , twice four -
I shall be wrecked and swim ashore ;
Then all alone - shan't I be brave ? -
I'll live like Crusoe in a cave.

When I am TEN I shall, you know,
An admiral be like Jellicoe ;
I'll wear a sword and cocked hat fine,
And never go to bed till nine..

"Far off in Lancashire, under a thorn,

Where they sup buttermilk, with a ram's horn;

And a pumpkin scoop'd with a yellow rim,

Is the bonnie bowl, they breakfast in."

  DAME TROT AND HER CAT - 1Old Dame Trot and her Cat

Dame Trot and her cat,
Sat down for to chat;
The Dame sat on this side,
And Puss sat on that.

"Puss" says the Dame,
 "Can you catch a rat,
Or a mouse in the dark"
 "Purr" said the cat.

DAME TROT AND HER CAT - 2

Dame Trot and her cat,
Led a peaceable life
When they were not troubled,
With other folks' strife.

When Dame had her dinner,
Puss near her would wait,
And was sure to receive,
A nice piece from her plate.

A frog he would a wooing go, Heigho! says Rowley.
Whether his mother would let him or no:
Chorus -
 With a roley - poley gammon and spinach.
Heigho! says Anthony Rowley.

So off he set in his opera hat, Heigho! says Rowley.
And on his way he met with a Rat.
Chorus -
With a roley-poley, gammon and spinach.
Heigho! says Anthony Rowley.


Pray, Mr Rat, will you go with me ? Heigho! says Rowley;

Pretty Miss Mousey for to see?
Chorus.

They soon arrived at Mousey Hall, Heigho! says Rowley;
They gave a loud knock and gave a loud call.
Chorus.

Pray Miss Mousey, are you within? Heigho says Rowley,
Oh Yes, kind sirs, I'm sitting to spin.
Chorus.

Pray Mr Frog, will you give us a song? Heigho! says Rowley.
But let it be something that's not very long.
Chorus.

 Indeed, Miss Mouse, replied Mr Frog, Heigho! says Rowley.
My cold has made me as hoarse as a hog.
 Chorus.

Since you have caught cold, Miss Mousey said. Heigho! says Rowley
I'll sing you a song that I have just made.
Chorus.

But while they were thus a merry making. Heigho! says Rowley.
A Cat and her Kittens came tumbling in.

Chorus.

The Cat seized the Rat by the crown. Heigho! says Rowley.
The Kittens they pulled the little Mouse down.

Chorus.

This pt Mr Frog in a terrible fright, Heigho! says Rowley.
He took up his hat and he wished them goodnight!
Chorus.

But as Froggie was crossing a silvery brook. Heighho! says Rowley.
A lily white Duck came and gobbled him up.
Chorus!

So there was the end of one, two and three. Heighho! says Rowley.
The Rat, and the Mouse, and the little Froggie.


With a roley-poley, gammon and spin
     Heigho! says Anthony Rowleyach

 I've a Question, please, to ask you.



I've a question, please, to ask you - oh,, I really must find out!
Fairy Land

I'm so worried that I scarcely know what I'm about.
I'd always quite believed it, since I was very small,
And now my new nurse tells me that it isn't true at all.
Aren't there really any Fairies?

Mother often talks of them, and sometimes Daddy , too,
But Nurse, who came last Saturday, says it's time I knew
That fairies, gnomes, and pixies are only just pretence,
She says I must learn proper things and use my common sense -
I'd much rather think about the fairies!

But last night in the orchard, I found a fairy ring,
It seemed that if I listened, I could hear the fairies sing,
And the rustly whispery sound their countless
feet make as they pass.
Nurse saidthat it could only be a cricket in the grass,

But I know it truly was the fairies.

This short poem was written by Katie Elthom, unfortunately I can't find out very much about her.

But thank you Katie, I'm sure you are going to be remembered by many children in 2007

 The New Ducklingnew duckling

"I want to be new," said the duckling.
"O ho!" said the wise old owl,
While the guinea-hen cluttered off chuckling
To tell all the rest of the fowl.

"I should like a more elegant figure,"
That child of a duck went on.
"I should like to grow bigger and bigger,
Until I could swallow a swan.

wise old owlI won't be the slave of a habit,
I won't have these webs on my toes
I want to run round like a rabbit,

A rabbit as red as a rose.

don't want to waddle like Mother,duckling
Or quack like my silly old Dad.
I want to be utterly other,
And frightfully modern and mad."

"Do  you know," said the turkey. "you're quacking!
There's a fox creeping up through the rye;
And, if you're not utterly lacking,
You'll make for that duck pond. Good-bye!"

"I wont," said the duckling. "I'll lift him
A beautiful song, like a sheep,
And when I have - as it were - biffed him,
I'll give him my feathers to keep."



foxNow the curious end of this fable
- So far as the rest ascertained,
                        Though they searched from the barn to the stable -
Was that only his feathers remained.

So he wasn't the slave to his habit,
And he didn't  have webs on his toes;
And perhaps he runs round like a rabbit,
A rabbit as red as a rose.

chest of smilesIf I Knew.The Giant drops the frowns in the sea

If I knew the box where the smiles were kept,
No matter how large the key
Or strong the bolt, I would try so hard,
'Twould open, I know, for me;

Then over the land and sea broadcast
I'd scatter the smiles to play,

That the children's faces might hold them fast
For many and many a day.


If I knew a box that was large enough
To hold all the frowns I meet,
I would gather them, every one,
From nursery, school, and street;
Then, folding and holding, I'd pack them in
And turn the monster key,
And hire a giant to drop the box
To the depths of the deep, deep sea.

THE YOUNG MOUSE

In a crack near a cupboard, with dainties provided,
A certain young mouse with her mother resided;
So securely they lived on that fortunate spot
Any mouse in the land might have envied their lot.

But one day this young mouse, who was given to roam,
Having made an excursion some way from her home,
On a sudden return with such joy in her eyes
That her grey, sedate parent expressed some surprise.

"Oh Mother!" said she, "the good folks of this house,
I'm convinced, have not any ill-will to a mouse;
And those tales can't be true which you always are telling,
For they've been at the pains  to contruct us a dwelling.

"The floor is of wood and the walls are of wires,
Exactl the size that one's comfort requires;
And I'm sure that we should there have nothing to fear
If ten cats with their kittens at once should appear.

"And then they have made such nice holes in the wall,
One could slip in and out with no trouble at all;
But forcing one's way through such crannies as these
Always gives one's poor ribs a most terrible squeeze.

"But the best of all is they've provided us well

With a large peice of cheese of most exquisite smell;
'Twas so nice I had put my head in to go through
When I thought it my dity to come to fetch you."


"Ah, child!" said her Mother, "believe, I entreat,
Both the cage and the cheese are a horrible cheat.
Do not think all that trouble they took for our good;
They would catch us and kill us all there if they could,

As they've caught and killed scores; and I never could learn
That a mouse who once entered did ever return!"
Let the young people mind what the old people say,
And when danger is near them keep out of the way.

Written some time ago by Jeffreys Taylor.

  Snowballing.

When the pools with ice are bound,
Igloo
                When the snow is on the ground,
                Then it is that we delight
          In a merry snowball fight.
                Fast and free the snowballs fly;
            To and fro we gaily hei;
                 Caring nought if balls of snow
Chance to fall on us or no.

As Flowers in Rain

Is it raining, little flower?
Be Glad of the rain!
Too much sun would wither thee;
'Twill shine again.
The sky is very black, 'tis true;
But just behind it shines the blue.

Art thou weary, tender heart?
Be glad of pain!
In sorrow sweetest things will grow,
As flowers in rain.
God watches; and thou wilt have sun,
When clouds their perfect work have done.

The Country Child

My home is a house

Near a wood
(I'd live in a street
If I could!)
The lanes are so quiet,
Oh, dear!
I do wish that someone
Lived near.

There is no one to play with
At all.
The trees are so high
And so tall:
And I should be lonely
For hours,
Were it not for the birds
And the flowers.

I wish that I lived
In a town -
To see all the trams
Going down
