157.Lollipop Lady

Maybe the lady who sees children across the road as they leave school is called something else in other parts of the world, but here, in Australia, she's always 'the Lollipop Lady'.So here is more childish nonsense all in aid of ABC WEDNESDAY and Letter 'L' of course!

          See an 'L' photo on my PLUS Blog and an 'L' story on my ETT SETTERA Blog

The Lollipop Lady is lucky
Her lollipop's big as a tree
She gave it a lick 
Right down to the stick
And nobody saw her but me.
The Lollipop Lady is Lucy
If I were like her I'd be proud. 
A lorry goes by
And she's shouting out 'Hi!'
And the driver is laughing out loud.
If I were a Lollipop Lady
I'd lick lollipops all the day long.
I'd stand in the street
Quite contented to eat
And la-la a Lollipop song.
The Lollipop Lady is lucky
Her lollipop certainly grew
From low it grew high,
And that isn't a lie!
She tells me it's perfectly true!

Here we just have crossing guards. Not nearly poetic as the lollipop lady

I just love your ditties (or do you prefer to call them odes again) They do raise a smile.

In England they are definitely Lollypop ladies........ but in our case we have a lollipop man!
Your rhyme is great. Also like the Gilbert O 'Sulivan accompaniment!

Cute poem for the very cute lollipop lady. Very cute and funny choice for the theme.
Happy ABC Wednesday.
Thank you for visiting MDS.

That's a great poem! I love the bit where she licked it right down to the stick and nobody saw her but me.

Just to say thanks for all you do for stroke survivors nad carers, we would be lost without people like yourself.

Thanks also for nice comments on my L blog

I was kind of a 'lollipop girl' when in grade six. We were "responsible" students who wore vests and badges and carried "Stop" signs to help kids across the street. Thanks for your comment on my blog today about my "lashes."

Lollipop Lady sounds so much better than crossing guard which we have here in my town in Canada.
Another great poem Brenda.

Great idea for L:)

Great lollipop lady poem! They have been referred to as 'Crossing Wardens' by officialdom and the media for quite a while, here. It hasn't caught on with the rest of us, however!

Loved the cute little poem.

My son used to be a dedicated lollipop boy until it was decided that fifth graders were too young to be trusted as crossing guards. He took his responsibilities absolutely seriously as I'm sure the other boys did. said...

I like the idea of a lollipop girl. It sounds so wonderful, especially for small children.

I love the poem! LOL!!

Yes, Lollipop Ladies in England, but sadly, the Lollipop Lady in our village retired and they couldn't find anyone to take her place and then they just forgot about it and the kids have to fend for themselves.

Ridiculous situation. The lights she used to turn on to warn traffic are no longer turned on at school hours, and the primary school doesn't even have a proper road crossing for them to use!

Ooooooooh. You made me to smack my lips and droool - no no, not at the Lollipop lady..!!!

Great poem, thank you. I'm reading it to my children now to help instil the 'crossing safely' message. Best wishes from London.
