THE SLEEPING SUN

Дата: 14-07-2005 | 04:49:54

At night
When the sun
Is too tired
To fly
It slowly
Descends
From the heights
Of the sky.
Somewhere
In the ocean
Once weary and pale,
It closes its eyes
On the back
Of a whale.
And dolphins
Jump out –
For them
It is fun –
They are helping to bear
The sleeping sun.
And sometimes
It happens
Somewhere
On a prairie,
Buffalos
Come to support it
And carry.
And even
In desert
The sun
Finds
Its friends –
It rides
Humpy camels,
It crosses
The sands.
In African jungles
The sun
Can relax,
Through night
It keeps moving
On elephants’ backs.
It rests
Just a while,
Then continues
Its flight,
And breaks
In the morning
The darkness
Of night.


COLORED SNOW


Did you know?
Did you know?
Many,
Many
Years
Ago,
Then
The snow
Was not white –
It was colored,
It was bright.
It was green,
And blue,
And yellow.
It was kind,
And it was mellow.
And it even
Cast a spell
With its
Special
Snowy
Smell.
But the snow,
The colored snow,
Faded
Many years ago.
And eventually
From bright,
It became
Completely
White.
Only sometimes
Which is rare,
Unexpected,
Unaware,
When you thumb
An ancient book,
Something
Can attract
Your look.
And you see
And smell
Awake
A hidden
Colored
Snowflake.

THE RUNAWAY REFRIGERATOR

The Fridge,
My goodness,
Ran away,
Went running
Like a bull.
And when I asked him:
"Tell me why?"
He said:
"I lost my cool!"

THERE WAS A MAN

There was a man,
His name was Harry.
He used a cane,
And he was scary.
Upset,
He once
Became insane -
And then
They called him:
"Hurricane!"

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ZOO

In the middle
Of the Zoo,
Panda sits
And eats
Bamboo.
Tell me,
Mr. Panda,
What is your
Agenda?

TO VISIT A FRIEND

To visit a friend
In a far away land
Isn’t easy
When you are
An antelope.
But he was
Such a whiz,
Took a picture of his
Which he mailed
To his friend
In an envelope.
When the antelope’s friend
Got the envelope and
Opened it,
He discovered
An antelope.
And he jumped
Right away,
And he shouted:
Hurray!
What a pleasant surprise
In an envelope.

А утром за чаем,
Ночной вспомнив сон,
Рассвет повстречает
Поджаренный слон!
