When Dick tripped up in the road,
His expletive so I'm reliably told,
" A kind heart always brings its own reward," said Mrs. Lee.

'Road' and 'told' don't rhyme. :wink: Ah well....

When Dick tripped up in the road,
His expletive so I'm reliably told,
Was loud and clear,
'Go down to the side-shows by the river this afternoon. I'll meet you somewhere in disguise. Bet you won't know me!' wrote Fatty.

Was loud and clear,
And I swear you could hear,
Goon, from Peterswood, shouting "you toad!"
'Tis loving and giving that makes life worth living.

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)

When the Five went walking one day,
They saw a strange boat in the bay,
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

(E. Blyton, Sunday Times, 1951)

They saw a strange boat in the bay,
It flew a blue flag,
'Go down to the side-shows by the river this afternoon. I'll meet you somewhere in disguise. Bet you won't know me!' wrote Fatty.

T'was made from a bag,
"If Hugo's treasure you would see, look for a door where none should be".

They saw a strange boat in the bay,
It flew a blue flag,
T'was made from a bag
Which resembled a large bird of prey!

A new one:

A young blackbird sat on a fence,
'Go down to the side-shows by the river this afternoon. I'll meet you somewhere in disguise. Bet you won't know me!' wrote Fatty.

A young blackbird sat on a fence,
As he waited for school to commence,
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'
