The Giant's Magic Harp Sings: A Fairy Tale Poem

November was a very busy month for me. December has kept me on my toes so far too! Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I dug into my computer files for a poem to post today. I selected a fairy tale poem for you--a poem in which the giant's golden harp cries out to her master as Jack--of Beanstalk fame--runs off with it.


“Save me,” sings the magic harp.
“Hear my solo in F sharp:
Save me, save me. Scooby-do,
Master, I belong with you.

“I like living in the sky,
Somewhere over the rainbow, high
Above my country ‘tis of thee.
Fee fo fo fum! Rescue me.

“Oh, great giant, take me back.
I don’t want to live with Jack.
Save me, master, don’t refuse—
Or I’ll only sing the blues.”


At Blue Rose Girls, I have a poem by June Harvey titled I Cannot Speak of War.

I’m doing the Poetry Friday Roundup at Wild Rose Reader today.
