Children’s Poetry by Scáth Beorh The Society June 18, 2014 Humor 1 Comment Some People Say Some people say that giraffes were petite and they grew their necks out to properly eat, or they were once dinosaurs who lost their wings. But I know God makes serendipitous things. I Had A Pair I had a pair of tennis shoes who caught a cold and couldn’t play, therefore I tucked them into bed, opened the window—sky was grey— turned on the radio for them… that’s when my sneakers spoke: “I’d like to lie here for a while and listen to Baroque.” Goodnight Daytime! Goodnight daytime! It’s rainy outdoors. It’s wintry and cloudy out here on the moors. My socks live way over in one of those drawers. These quilts are much warmer than icy wood floors. I might have a toothache… it hurts all the time. My teeth love warm sunshine and coconut lime. My nose enjoys breezes that jingle the chimes, not cold wind that freezes… Oh, goodnight daytime!
