Poetry

The following appeared in the Australian Women's Weekly Saturday 2nd June 1934.

Naughty Tommy
By Cecilia O'Neill
Sliding down the bannisters, knocking o'er the chairs,
Licking out the jam pots, stealing all the pears,
Smashing up the crockery, kicking at the bed,
Everybody shifted, when Tommy lost his head.

Looking for his tie, looking for his shirt,
Rushing down the yard, slipping in the dirt.
Hunting everywhere for pencil, book and rule,
Everybody shifts, when Tommy's late for school.

Mrs. O'Neill lived in Springwood and received a prize of 2/6 for her effort.
