Timothy Dan – John D. Sheridan

Timothy Dan
Is a very rich man,
And he keeps all his wealth in his pockets:
Four buttons, a box,
The keys of two clocks,
And the chain of his grandmother Margaret’s locket.
A big piece of string
(It’s a most useful thing),
A watch without hands,
And three rubber bands,
Five glassy marbles,
Some tail-ends of chalk,
A squeaker that once
Made a golliwog talk,
A broken-down penknife
With only one blade,
And a little toy boat
That his grandfather made.

You’d never believe
(Hearing such a long list)
That there’s room in each pocket
For one little fist;
You’d never believe
That the smallest of boys
Could carry so much
In his wee corduroys.
