Rat and Mole In A Boat On A Moonlit Night

June 7, 2021 at 10:32 pm (Children's Story, Entertainment, Poetry) (, , )

It was a night of a crescent moon
Only sound on the lake was cry of a loon
Mole rowed the boat through reeds and water lilies
Rat smoked a pipe like Grandma of the Hillbillies

A falling star fell in the sky behind the pair
Undoubtedly many wishes were made then and there
Rat had a small lamp attached to his pole
Lighting the way for the boat rowed by Mole

On a nearby lily sat a small frog
As quiet he was as a bump on a log
Behind the boat some distance away
A swan swam as tranquility lay

It was a magical mystical moonlit night
The water was calm and the stars were bright
Friendship was in the air
The boat’s true guiding light.

Toad of Toad Hall

July 2, 2020 at 10:34 pm (Humour, Literature, Poetry) (, , , , , )

Toad of Toad Hall
Motorbike came to a crawl
As petrol had leaked in bike stall

So Toad took his car keys out of a jar
And went for a spin in his motor car
But when he hit a tree, it gave his car a dent
But since he owned Toad Hall, he didn’t pay any rent

He took his motor boat for a ride down the river
With Dodds for his kidneys and gin for his liver
He passed Mole, Rat and Badger in a row boat
And not watching his way, he hit a castle moat
But lucky for him, his life jacket did float

Kenneth Grahame’s
