Children’s Poem: Sandman Dan

Sandman Dan --

Daniel Frog I am often called,

though you can call me Dan. I live

within a lily pond; I’m working

for ‘the man’. I jump and sweep

the waters deep for a special

type of sand which helps a sleepy

little one travel to Dreamland.

 

I’m not well-known by anyone –

my secret’s meant to keep – even

you will forget me soon when you

drift off to sleep. So off you go

to Wonderland, and before your nap

is through, I shall slip back to my

lily pad, collect more sand for you.

    Hi Diane and thanks for sharing your poems. I particularly love this one because my youngest boy is called Daniel (although clearly he`s not a frog!)and he has a little person (my baby grandaughter) who he sings to sleep each night….this so reminds me of them!

    Thank you.

      A lot of people over the years have enjoyed this one. When it was first written, it won a Blue Ribbon at the Contra Costa County Fair in California. Yes, my poems and art have traveled much more widely than myself…lol…
