Joseph the Goat


From a series of very large 40 x 30 ins. Fantasy Animal drawings in ink.

I have written a poem about Joseph the Goat, a signed copy of which is included with the Limited Edition Print.

Joseph The Goat

All the children love to play
With Joseph’s ringlets once a day.
They stick their little fingers in
And wind them round and round again.
Every day at half past three,
Just after they’ve all had their tea
Of chocolate cake and lemonade,
Before the light begins to fade
The children race towards the gate
With arms outstretched, they cannot wait
To get to Joseph standing there
With pink and blue and yellow hair!
Joseph’s golden nose shines bright,
His little toes grasp very tight
Onto the grass beneath his feet
His gentle voice goes “bleat, bleat, bleat”
As all the boys and every girl
Make Joseph’s ringlets twist and curl.
They’ve never seen on any goat
Such horns of beauty, horns of note!
A touch of Rose and Jasmine there
Reflects the colours in his hair.
His little tail so short and cute
Is perfect in its woolly suit.
Oh what a lovely goat is he,
The sweetest goat, quite honestly!
He always stands so strong and true
His twirly strands all pink and blue!
But as the day becomes the night
The children mourn the fading light,
And must return to cosy beds
With Joseph filling all their heads,
Until tomorrow once again,
They’ll run to see their lovely friend,
And bend and twist his hair with glee,
But only once they’ve had their tea!
