There is nothing lovelier than engaging children through poems. It invites the inner child of any age, to connect at the heart, if only for a moment. by Lois Macdonald

Lullaby for You My Darling

by Lois Macdonald
Lullaby for you my darling  No good-byes til we grow old Slumber deeply, sleep sweetly                                      Hear the music, gently flow.
Dream of kittens, fuzzy mittens                               Dancing bears and sailing kites                                   Tumbling blocks, things that rock                                          Ticking clocks through the night.
So, don’t fuss now, there’s us now                                        Counting sheep, til out of sight                                      Precious baby, there’s no maybe                                       Angels will guard you, til daylight.
Lullaby for you my darling  No goodbyes til we grow old Slumber deeply, sleep sweetly                                      Hear the music, gently flow.

Every Meal Should Start With Cake -by Lois Macdonald


Our family eats organic foods
And things that grow on trees
We can’t have refined sugar
Only honey straight from bees
Their pure sweet sticky nectar
Tastes like candy melted down
But chewing on a honeycomb
Makes smiles turn upside down

No dyes that make things pretty
Should be added to my drinks
Mother says they make kids crazy
That’s what all the experts think
I dream of fries and burgers
But get tofu dogs that stink
All pale without a hint of brown
And shine like porcelain sinks

Good news my dad is breaking
He’s been looking at cookbooks
And drools over the pastry page
Which prompts mom’s nasty looks
I’m really praying hard these days
That junk food will become a phase
And chips will reign on every plate
And every meal will start with cake!

The Bat -by Lois Macdonald

Bats Are Cute

I’m plump and round and furry
With two lovely wings on my back
But I spend my days in the attic
Apparently, they wanted a cat.

When I fly downstairs for a visit
Mother ducks and hits the floor
Where in her bed lies Princess
Fluffy kitten they simply adore.

Then she smiles and purrs and winks
As I race towards the nearest door
Everyone covers their head and shrink
Screeching, “bats we really abhor.”

But I think I’m as cute as kitty
I can hang upside down anywhere
I don’t need fancy collars or dishes
I eat bugs just to show them I care.

So, I’ll head upstairs to my attic
The sweet place I call “my home”
And tonight my friends will visit
And play hide and go seek and roam.



I TOSSED MY VEGGIES by Lois Macdonald


Dreams from the Meadow -by Lois Macdonald

Dream of sweetness, it’s all around
While in the meadow, hear every sound
From brown-feathered larks singing
Notes played, heart-strings ringing
With all the charm nature brings.

A scurrying little grey velvet mouse
Runs round and round and round about
He perks his ears and watches me
Lay ever so still, and you will see
He will quickly vanish, one, two, three.

The tall grass parts and out he pops
With a bushy tail, it’s a coy red fox
He studies me with his golden eyes
Standing timidly, for he’s awfully shy
Soon he’ll disappear, with no goodbye.

Watching bumblebees while they dance
From flower to flower, not by chance
Monarch butterflies join in, to enhance
This vision of beauty and romance
Now charms me into, a dreamy trance.

I Tossed My Veggies -by Lois Macdonald

I tossed my veggies
Counting 1,2,3
First came the broccoli
Next came the peas
And counting 4,5,6
I threw in celery sticks
Until the whole concoction
Made me feel quite sick!

Counting on to 7
With an 8 and 9
Mixing in green lettuce
Made it look like slime
But when I finally reached 10
Mother brought the dressing
And with sweet relief
I cried out “What a blessing!”

So, the moral of this story
Is those veggies are good
While most are delicious
Only one tastes like wood
Don’t feed it to your dog
Nor your cat or canary
And never take a bite of
A veggie that turns hairy!

Now please put on a smile
Wipe away that frown
When you chew real hard
They usually go down so

Just plug up your nose
Close your eyes real tight
Toss those veggies back
Until they’re out of sight!
