Stand Render

Draw me a picture of

Passion long sore past

Of swift cold winds

From a north cold, fast

Outline the future

Bright or short

Of a Princess bold

Strong from Fablehaven court

Show cat’s curt tails curlicuing

Aloof lithesome beast

Awaiting the master servant

Next hot feast

Wonder with a line draft

Wine glass down and paintbrush raised

More ochre more fire more enscene

The next promise amazed

Toymaker! Toymaker!

Toymaker! Toymaker!
Please make me a car!
Make it go fast!
Make it go far!
Paint it hot red
With racing stripes of blue;
Yes, Mr Toymaker,
All the kids love you!

Toymaker! Toymaker!
Please make me a dolly!
Something to take to granny’s
When we go on the trolley!
Make her with a pretty dress,
Something in silver and gold;
Yes, Mr Toymaker,
I ALWAYS do as I’m told!

Toymaker! Toymaker!
Make me a kite!
Make it fly high,
Clean out of sight!
Can it have a long tail?
Will it spin in the sky?
Yes, Mr Toymaker,
I’ll let sister have a try.

Toymaker! Toymaker!
Please tell us true—
What is your favorite toy:
Izit a horsey or a cow that goes moo?
What do you make
When freeing your wiles?
Yes, Mr Toymaker,
I do see all those kids smiles!
