The Lyresmith Poetry Collection - Children's Rhymes

This book is titled "The Lyresmith Poetry Collection - Children's Rhymes". It is a collection of rather strange children's rhymes.

The following poems are more like songs than actual poetry. Sung by children all over the world, it's hard not to smile when hearing a little one reciting the verses. Though their choice of lyrics may seem a bit strange, the happy kids sing them with all their heart. These are just a few that I've collected from the youngsters themselves over the years.

"Ring Around the Tower"
Ring around the tower,
Crackling full of power.
Shadows, shadows,
Norrath falls down.

"It's Raining, It's Pouring"
It's raining, it's pouring
The shadowed man is snoring.
Lopped off your head,
Now you're dead,
You won't wake up next morning.

"In a Tower, In a Wood"
In a tower, in a wood
Shadowed man by a window stood
Saw a halfling walking by
Knocking at his door, he was about to die

Help me! Help me! the halfling said
Wicked troll wants to eat me dead.
Little halfling come inside.
Take my hand and you I'll hide.

"Here Comes a Candle"
Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
And here comes a shadow to chop off your head
Chip, chop
Chip, chop
Chip, chop
Chip, ch...

"Open, Shut Them"
Open them, shut them,
Open them, shut them,
Give a little clap, clap, clap

Creep them, meet them,
Creep them, meet them,
Put them in your lap, lap, lap

Know them, need them,
Know them, need them,
Right up to your chin, chin, chin

Bad old shadows
Bad old shadows
Open wide and let them in!
