Funny Poems for Children

By Josie Whitehead


By Josie Whitehead

Three Giants

Three giants, all friends, made their home in our world.

     They were as tall as three giants could be.

‘As big as a bus?’  No, much taller than that,

     And much taller than even a tree!


Now tell me if you have seen any of them –

      Or perhaps you have just seen their shoes.

Oh I’m perfectly sure if they came to your town,

      You would see them, of course, on the news.


With feet on the ground and their heads in the clouds,

     The sun was a little afraid.

With their massive big shoes they could dig up a field

     Without needing a tractor or spade.


They could look into aeroplanes as they flew past.

     Well, perhaps you have seen them this way?

If your answer to each of my questions is ‘no’ –

    Keep looking.  You’ll meet them one day.
