       Classic humorous and funny poems for children, about kids, and for kids of all shapes and sizes.


In an ocean, 'way out yonder
    (As all sapient people know),
Is the land of Wonder-Wander,
    Whither children love to go;
It's their playing, romping, swinging,
    That give great joy to me
While the Dinkey-Bird goes singing
    In the Amfalula-tree!

There the gum-drops grow like cherries,
    And taffy's thick as peas,--
Caramels you pick like berries
    When, and where, and how you please
Big red sugar-plums are clinging
    To the cliffs beside that sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
    In the Amfalula-tree.

So when children shout and scamper
    And make merry all the day,
When there's naught to put a damper
    To the ardor of their play;
When I hear their laughter ringing,
    Then I'm sure as sure can be
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
    In the Amfalula-tree.

For the Dinkey-Bird's bravuras
    And staccatos are so sweet--
His roulades, appogiaturas,
    And robustos so complete,
That the youth of every nation--
    Be they near or far away--
Have especial delectation
    In that gladsome roundelay.

Their eyes grow bright and brighter,
    Their lungs begin to crow,
Their hearts get light and lighter,
    And their cheeks are all aglow;
For an echo cometh bringing
    The news to all and me
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
    In the Amfalula-tree.

I'm sure you'd like to go there
    To see your feathered friend--
And so many goodies grow there
    You would like to comprehend!
Speed, little dreams, your winging
    To that land across the sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
    In the Amfalula-Tree!

                                 Eugene Field.
