THE REAL STORY OF
GOLDILOCKS

By Josie Whitehead

Real Story of Goldilocks Part 1

The classroom clock said ten past ten. 

      The children all worked hard.

A shadow passed their window pane

     And a girl ran through the yard.

 

The classroom door began to move 

      As someone came inside:

‘It’s Goldilocks.  She’s late again!’ –

     And all the children sighed.

 

Now what excuse has she today

      For getting here so late?

She missed the bus?  The car broke down?

      They smiled, but had to wait.

 

 What story do you think that she

        Then told her teacher next?

‘You’re late again!  What’s happened now?

      Come girl, don’t look perplexed!’

 

‘You know the woods, behind the school? 

       I walked to school that way

And there I saw the sort of house

      You don’t see every day.

 

‘It seemed to call me through the gate

      And up to the front door

 And when I found it wasn’t locked,

       I wanted to see more.'

                                            Continued . . . .
