The Glaborious Tove: A Nonsense Poem

The Glaborious Tove: A Nonsense Poem

The extraordinary poem below was shared for the "Writing Your Own Nonsense Poem" assignment, the final exercise in Brave Writer's online Groovy Grammar class. It was dictated by 8-year old Zoe to her mom. Enjoy!

The Glaborious Tove

by Zoe (age 8)

The glaborious tove
slicked its tongue and
killed the tumtum bird

The flowers screamed as
the glaborious tove
slicked its tongue again

Beware my girl
Beware my girl
the glaborious tove is
evil of wings
one gloppy glop of its
slip will kill thee all

One two, one two
There she stood in thought
One two one two
she killed all she sought
One two, one two
the glaborious tove
slicked its tongue at her

I am not afraid screamed the girl named Lilac

I got you she cried with
the ponzon sword she
one two three
killed the glaborious tove

O come my beautiful Lilac
with fairy wings you now have
