Timmy and the Great Big Hole
excerpts from Timmy and the Great Big Hole, a story in verse...
Tim sat up in bed with a stretch and a yawn.
He ran down the stairs and out on the lawn.
"There's no school today,
and there's nothin' to do!
My friends are away,
and I'm feeling so-o-o blue!
"I can't play with Ivan,
Jake is away....
This is sure gonne be
One horrible day!
He started to dig..first a dent in the grass.
Then Timmy kept working.
He shoveled real fast.
He kept going deeper, 'till he just couldn't see.
"This tunnel," he shouted, "is deeper than me!"
Pretty soon he saw some light.
What could this be that came in sight?
It was clear to see that they had come
To a special place...Now this was fun!
