The Blue Dinosaur


Once upon a happy time,
At the end of a long street,
Lived a little brown eyed girl
Smiling always very sweet.

Her small room was painted pink,
Pillows pink, pink her bed sheet.
All her dolls, her pretty dress
Everything was clean and neat.

Outside it was cold and sleet,
Christmas time was almost there,
She stood watching from the window
Holding tight her teddy bear.

Thinking about Santa Claus
She made then a special prayer:
„Please, bring something else this time.
No more dolls with plastic hair.”

„I just want a dinosaur
Wearing a blue silk costume
With white skin and golden wings
Flying all around my room.

I am bored of too much pink
It’s enough when roses bloom.
When the sky is blue and clear
I want blue but never gloom.”

Maybe God heard that girl’s wish,
Changing what was there below,
He made snow instead of sleet,
With blue sky and golden glow.

Kitty


I think Kitty is not guilty.
She was sleeping at first floor.
Daddy put lard in a mousetrap
And then locked our corn shed door.

Just one little mouse was caught
And I felt sorrow and pity.
Mommy gave him to the cat
Poor mouse, he was so pretty.

But our darling blue eyed Kitty,
Let the mouse run as he could
Choosing milk instead for breakfast,
Like an honest hunter should.
