My Poem (aged 8 1/2)

At the weekend I was in the mood to sort through some of my mother's papers. She must have liked this poem that I wrote when I was at primary school as she kept it all these years.

I find it rather disturbing! (I'm only guessing about my age)

By The Sea

I was walking along the shore
It was really rather a bore
The I came across a cave
Marked on the walls was the devil's grave

I went in and saw
Mermaids dancing in fours
Then there was a big loud roar
And the mermaids fled from the shore


I ran and I ran
And behind me the devil sang
If I catch you alive
You'll die in a hive

Then up I awoke
And thought it a joke
And now I'm no more
On the sea shore
