Poem: Steam Shovel by Charles Malam

The dinosaurs are not all dead.
I saw one raise its iron head
To watch me walking down the road
Beyond our house today.
Its jaws were dripping with a load
Of earth and grass that it had cropped.
It must have heard me where I stopped,
Snorted white steam my way,
And stretched its long neck out to see,
And chewed, and grinned quite amiably.

  1. Oh, this is one of my son’s favorites-we even found a matchbox that almost matches Mary Anne’s looks. Oh the pics seem ok for me, but I have a wide screen and use Firefox-not sure if that helps you or not.
