Poetry Friday: Don't Bump the Glump!

On this Happy Poetry Friday, I share a poem from Shel Silverstein's Don't Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies. Celebrating 50 years, you can find this collection in color for your totz. Enjoy!

About the Bloath

In the undergrowth
There dwells the Bloath
Who feeds upon poets and tea.
Luckily I know this about him,
While he knows almost nothing of me.

Don't Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies
by Shel Silverstein
HarperCollins Publishers, 1964, 1992

Can you believe it? I've never read Don't Bump the Glump! I'll look for it.

I'm relieved that the Bloath doesn't have Internet access!

Thanks for sharing this book birthday with us :-)

Wow, I think of Shel Silverstein as part of the modern age of children's literature. Time to start adjusting my interpretation. I love the poem! Yes, keep the Bloath off the internet.
