Trees

by Harry Behn

Trees are the kindest things I know,
They do no harm, they simply grow
And spread a shade for sleepy cows,
And gather birds among their bows.

They give us fruit in leaves above,
And wood to make our houses of,
And leaves to burn on Halloween
And in the Spring new buds of green.

They are first when day’s begun
To tough the beams of morning sun,
They are the last to hold the light
When evening changes into night.

And when a moon floats on the sky
They hum a drowsy lullaby
Of sleepy children long ago…
Trees are the kindest things I know.

The Counties of Ireland Poem

Verse 1

We are Munster’s counties fair

Cork, Kerry , Limerick , Clare.

Waterford, Tipperary here we are,

 

Verse 2

Leinster is beyond compare,

Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Kildare

Wexford, Offaly, Laois, Kilkenny

Longford and Louth are as good as any

Meath, Westmeath and that is all

Over now to a province that’s small.

 

Verse 3

Connacht is the smallest oh,

Galway, Leitrim and Mayo.

Roscommon, Sligo that’s the lot,

Just one more verse for you we’ve got.

 

Verse 4

We are Ulster’s counties nine,

Lets forget the dividing line.

Donegal, Derry, Antrim, Down,

All are counties of renown,

Armagh, Monaghan and Tyrone

Cavan, Fermanagh now all are known.

 

 

 

 

 

 

On The Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan

On the Ning Nang Nong 
Where the Cows go Bong! 
and the monkeys all say BOO! 
There’s a Nong Nang Ning 
Where the trees go Ping! 
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo. 
On the Nong Ning Nang 
All the mice go Clang 
And you just can’t catch ’em when they do! 
So its Ning Nang Nong 
Cows go Bong! 
Nong Nang Ning 
Trees go ping 
Nong Ning Nang 
The mice go Clang 
What a noisy place to belong 
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!
