Children's Poems
by Margo Fallis
The Hedge Monster


Thereís a monster in our hedges that comes out only at night.

Iíve seen it and can tell you it gives me an awful fright.

The leaves begin to rustle and the branches sway about

And then the worst thing happens, the hedge monster jumps right out.

Its toes are made of hawthorn and are long and bent and brown.

Theyíre thorny and have prickly leaves that hang and droop way down.

Itís legs and arms are holly with red berries in the fall

And the monsterís head is squished up branches of boxwood four feet tall.

It wanders through our garden and chases the snowy owls

And then into the chicken coop stealing feathers from the fowl.

When the moon is full and the shadows dance and swirl

The hedge monsterís appetite is for a little girl.

I stay in the house at night and never go outside

Because the hedge monster will get me, so in my bed I hide.
