It was Roald Dahl Day yesterday and I couldn't let it pass without dedicating my Verse for Thursday this week to him. What an amazing man and an amazing writer. He wrote stories that got kids reading, not only that he made reading fun and he created the most amazing chocolate factory ever.
So for him and in honour of this literature genius I give you my verse for today.....
Books which everyone can understand
children and adults in every single land
They join altogether
whatever the weather
and read to their hearts content
You transformed us to different worlds
lands and adventures unfurled
from the BFG
to Charlie's Chocolate Factory
Reading would become so cool
Your books are really funny
loved bedtime stories as a mummy
Imagination would go wild
whether you're a adult or just a child
A delight Roald Dahl a delight
Who could forget Tales of the Unexpected
the seventies I've just recollected
They were tricky to get the gist
and always ended with a twist
Even on tv your stories shone through
I admire your ability to rhyme
an inspiration you'll be for all time
Not only for me
but the whole world would agree
You're the best Mr Dahl just the best!
Thank you for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for Free from Friday so until then take care.
A Verse for Thursday....
