Toys (how everything started – I was 12 when I wrote this :) )




Teddies, little dolls and kittens

Either stuffed or made from knittings,

Pretty toys that come to bow

To the mighty tomcat Meow.


And at night they’re all awake

They’re alive and joy they take

In doing the chores at hand.

What they break, they quickly mend.


Hurried, busy little fellows,

It soon dawns over the meadows!

Be careful tiny friend!

A kid’s gotten out of bed!


When the clock strikes midnight next

The toys that are never vexed

Shall awake and play till dawn

And keep silent in the morn’.
