Funny Poems for Children

Ickledy, Mickledy, Pickledy Too

Ickledy, Mickledy, Pickledy too -

Ate and they ate and they grew and they grew.

     They soon became giants, and all very tall -

     And the children they met?  They frightened them all!


Ickledy, Mickledy, Pickledy too,

Lived in a forest!   Perhaps you all knew -

     But friends?  They had none.  They were lonely and shy

     With feet in the forest and heads in the sky.


Ickledy, Mickledy, Pickledy too -

Oh I’m sure that you’ll think that this story’s not true,

     But take my advice - and, oh don’t look so glum -

     Don’t gobble your food or a giant you’ll become!
