The Child Who Was Wild | POEM | Kids’ Poems and Stories With Michael Rosen


once there was a woman
a young young woman she ran from the city
the old old city she ran to the woods
the deep dark woods she wasn’t seen for days
many many days she came out of the woods
the deep dark woods she came with a child
a child who was wild she brought the child to the city
the old old city he grew and he grew
he grew and he grew his hands grew shoots
green shoots and leaves his shoulders grew flowers
the lily and the rose his hair was the blossom
that blows in the wind he stood in the city
the old old city with the leaves the flowers and the blossom falling falling falling on gray gray gravel
