Sian Nelson: If i had a castle, poem about a cardboard castle playhouse

If I had a castle ...

a poem by Sian Nelson

If I had a castle
I'd feel just like a king
My friends and I would play and laugh,
we'd even have a sing!

We'd decorate the outside with flags
red, white and blue
The inside would be just the same
with matching bunting too.

So if we were quite lucky
to have a castle sent
I know we'd play in it lots
just like our old play tent.

The postman might deliver
a lovely big parcel
Not knowing that our surprise package
would be a great big castle!!!
