Poem of the Day

Hello dear Goose

Hello dear Goose, it’s time for tea

So please come over and sit with me

I have some cakes and a sticky bun

I think that we shall have some fun

Buster goat has brought some bread

And although he carried it on his head

With strawberry jam and Vegemite

I’m sure that it will taste alright

Thank you Duck, it does look sweet

I’m glad he didn’t use his feet!


Oh look dear Goose, the Man in the Moon

Do you think that we can go there soon?

Of course Duck dear, we both shall fly

Out of the night, into the sky

Just close your eyes and rest your head

And tuck your feet up in the bed

For when you dream the moon you’ll see

And the Man within shall give you tea!


Oh look dear Goose, it is the sun

Is he smiling down on everyone?

Or is his radiance just for me

For I am a good little duck you see?

Of course Duck dear, he shines for you

And all the other creatures too

He gives us light and makes us warm

And dries us out after a storm

Oh dear Goose, how very clever

I hope the sun shall shine forever!
