The Little Pottery Man


By hywel


There once was a little pottery man
All alone and sad.
His Mamy and Dady had gone away,
And he was feeling bad.

All alone in a big empty house
He thought he’d never survive.
But soon he found he was on his way
To a place where he could stay alive.

The residents of the new garden did cry
All in one accord
“We hope he is going to join in and play
Our games, and not get bored.”

The pottery man was afraid at first.
He didn’t know what he’d see.

The rabbits were wary

The cat – she was scary !

The frog didn’t jump with glee

But soon they all gathered together as friends,
And welcomed him in to their fold.
“Come on little man, We are glad that you’re here.
You can stay with us till you are old”

This is the story of the little pottery man I found crying on a shelf in an empty house not many miles from here :o))

Don`t speak with a stutter,
Be brave and Welcome To Goy......

What a heart warming story Hywel :-)

His sweet little face has won my heart,
'though I know he's a flowerpot boy.
His new animal friends will soon make amends
For his old sadness....and so will Goy:-)
