A Tall Tale

Evergreen - - Then & Now -

Verses and rhymes have amused chil­dren across the gen­er­a­tions, even those who are grow­ing up in our tech­no­log­i­cal age. Mau­reen Hill, who lives in Lod­don, Nor­folk, wanted to share this lit­tle ditty which she dis­cov­ered many years ago. She tells us it is a favourite with the chil­dren in her fam­ily.

Mr. Gi­raffe

Oh, Mr. Gi­raffe, you make me laugh, You seem to be made all wrong! Your head is so high, Up there in the sky, Your neck is so very long. Your din­ner and tea, It seem to me, Have such a long way to go, How do they know The way to your tummy be­low?

A pack of Colin Carr Notelets will be sent to those read­ers whose con­tri­bu­tions are pub­lished in this fea­ture. Please send your snip­pets & cut­tings to: “Scrap­book”, Ever­green, The Lyp­i­atts, Lans­down Road, Chel­tenham, Glos., GL50 2JA.
