An ideal poem for small children, which will help to encourage their listening skills.
Listen Very Carefully…..!
Listen very carefully….Can you hear a noise?
It’s the chattering of teddy bears and other little toys.
They are travelling together to very snowy lands.
There’s a monkey and a panda, and a dragon, holding hands.
There’s a rabbit on a scooter, and rocket that can fly
They are travelling on moonbeams, high up in the sky.
There’s a robot on a tricycle, and an elephant in a car
They are travelling together, and I think they will go far.
Where are they going? Would you like to know?
Listen very carefully…. while I whisper soft and low,
They are travelling to
Lapland for a very special day
Where little elves will wrap them up and put them on a sleigh.’
Listen very carefully….to a sound that makes you tingle.
It’s the stamping of a reindeer’s hoof and little bells that jingle.
Soon the toys are travelling, travelling far away
Wrapped in pretty boxes for a special kind of day.
Dreaming of the morning and waking in the light.
Listen very carefully…..
Can you hear a noise?
Could that be Father Christmas, delivering the toys?
