Michael Rosen, born 1946 – and still going strong
Once there was a boy who wanted to be beautiful and a girl who wanted to be strong. The boy was worried that he wasn't beautiful enough. The girl was worried that she wasn't strong enough. One day they went out to seek their fortunes. But there was nothing. There was nowhere for them to go Nothing for them to see No one for them to meet. There was no story for them to be in. They couldn't even meet each other. You may have thought they had already met but they hadn't because there wasn't anywhere for them to meet. Until you came along and decided that you can do something about it.
