Poem of the Day

Rosella’s Dilemma


At five-to-eleven Rosella flew in

to a magical garden where time stands still.

With five giant statues of fairy-tale folk

and two silver fountains that sang and then spoke.


Eleven big books that could read for themselves

surrounded by flowers and mischievous elves.

Eleven days later he flew out again

and found that the time was exactly the same.


“Still ten fifty-five?” he said with a grin

“In that case, I may as well do it again!”
