We were in good company

Herald had a link to this poem today

Trees talk to each other at night.

All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.

Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.

Tiny bears live in drain pipes.

If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.

The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.

Everyone knows at least one secret language.

When nobody is looking, I can fly.

We are all held together by invisible threads.

Books get lonely too.

Sadness can be eaten.

I will always be there.


His lies appear more poetic than ours:

Toothpaste can kill you (true if taken to excess)

Eating your crusts will make your hair curly

Two minutes . . . .

And our masterpiece was Stephen as our third son. Lachlan took several years to recover . . .

And of course Andy Riley has made a name with his cartoons"Lies to tell small children" that have a ring of familiarity if not truth
