SIMPKIN

Here is Simpkin

Simpkin once and Simpkin twice

Simpkin nasty Simpkin nice

Simpkin fast and Simpkin slow

Simpkin high and Simpkin low

Simpkin round and round the chairs

Simpkin up and down the stairs

Simpkin thin and Simpkin fat

Simpkin this and Simpkin that

Simpkin weak and Simpkin strong

Simpkin short and Simpkin long

Simpkin smooth and Simpkin rough

And Simpkin THAT IS QUITE ENOUGH

Simpkin warm and Simpkin chilly

Simpkin sensible and silly

And sometimes when we stand and call

SIMPKIN JUST NOT THERE AT ALL

(Written by Quentin Blake)

 

MANHATTAN LULLABY

Lulled by rumble babble beep

Let these little children sleep

Let these city girls and boys

Dream a music in the noise

Hear a tune their city plucks

Up from buses up from trucks

Up from engines wailing fire

Up ten stories high and higher

Up from hammers rivets drills

Up tall buildings over sills

Up where city children sleep

Lulled by rumble babble beep

Late last night

Late last night

I lay in bed

Driving buses

In my head
