DIDDILY DEE DOT'S DREAM LAND

JAMIE JUNGLE-BOX PRESENTS

FREDERIC OGDEN NASH

Was an American poet well known for his light verse. At the time of his death in 1971, the New York Times said his "droll verse with its unconventional rhymes made him the country's best-known producer of humorous poetry".

I love Ogden Nash, and the wonderful Eugene Field. The Tale of the Custard Dragon obviously appeals to me more than most, due to my own books which are all about Dragons and Yourds, and strange beasties.  I hope to have the third book finished before the summer of 2010.



The Tale of the Custard Dragon


Belinda lived in a little white house,
With a little black kitten and a little grey mouse,
And a little yellow dog and a little red wagon,
And a realio, trulio, little pet dragon.


Now the name of the little black kitten was Ink,
And the little grey mouse, she called her Blink,
And the little yellow dog was sharp as Mustard,
But the dragon was a coward, and she called him Custard.


Custard the dragon had big sharp teeth,
And spikes on top of him and scales underneath,
Mouth like a fireplace, chimney for a nose,

And realio, trulio, daggers on his toes.
