At night
There was a monster in her room
A dragon, she screamed
I am a lizard, said the beast
Shoo.. shoo, she said
Ssshh.., hissed the beast
And jumped off the bed
The beast was running away
Before her father came

  1. Saran, Oom, gimana kalau judulnya direvisi jd “Once Upon a Night” biar kayak cerita2 dongeng gitu :D.

  2. Duh, saya seneng sekaligus ngiri tiap kali sampeyan post tentang anak…
    (seoertinya) butuh sekian belas tahun bagi saya untuk memberanikan diri punya anak :’

  3. A story beautifully told in a poem and a picture. I would call that a “Paffooney”, but people stopped listening to me long ago. I still think it is an art form, though, that has more depth and meaning than either the poem or the picture would have by itself.

    • Thanks.
      I intended this to introduce my 4 years old daughter to poem the way my grandmother did years ago. I believe that the children learn best through picture, so yes, i agree with what you called “Paffooney”.
