DLTK's Crafts for Kids
The Runaway

by Evaleen Stein
 

A frantic clatter of horses' feet!
A runaway's coming down the street!
    Flurry, scurry,
    Children, hurry!
Drop your playthings! Quick! don't wait!
Run and get within the gate!
Push the baby in the door,
Scramble in yourselves before
    --Whoa! Whoa!
    There they go!
Pell-mell rushing, snorting, quaking,
Wagon rumbling, harness breaking,
Frightened so they cannot know
Everybody's shrieking "Whoa!"
    O my, don't cry!
  Whiz, bang, they've galloped by!
No one hurt, but horses dashed
Round a post and wagon smashed!
    Dear me! Dear me!
  When a runaway we see,
Children, too, must run, oh, fast!
Run and hide as it goes past!
