Was He Teasing?
A fat little goblin with a long funny nose,
Dressed all in green from his head to his toes,
Hopped from the pear tree and saucily said,
“I’ll give you a whistle if you stand on your head!”
I tried and I couldn’t. Now do you suppose
He had a whistle, anyway, hidden in his clothes?
I’ve asked all the fairies, but nobody knows!
