Roald Dahl Day

Tomorrow is Roald Dahl Day... A wonderful idea to celebrate one of the worlds greatest wordsmith's...

3 years ago, On Roald Dahl day 2006, I did a reading of my and Roald Dahl's verse for Children in Cork City. It was so enjoyable, and I wrote the verse below expecially for it...

Hope it is enjoyed, and you all have a great Roald Dahl Day.

Roald Dahl Day

Any fan of Roald Dahl knows
He was a wizard when it came to prose.
And, although a great story he did tell
He also wrote great verse as well.
Like ‘Revolting Rhymes’ and ‘Rhyme stew’
His stories contained great rhymes to.
The 4 naughty Golden Ticket winners all had
A rhyme that showed us why they were bad.
So many great poems he did create
So I would like to celebrate
These rhymes and I’d also like to say
Have a Scrumdiddlyumptious Roald Dahl day
