Here you will find the Poem Daddy Fell into the Pond. of poet Alfred Noyes

Daddy Fell into the Pond.

Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey. 

We had nothing to do and nothing to say. 

We were nearing the end of a dismal day, 

And there seemed to be nothing beyond, 


 Daddy fell into the pond! 

And everyone's face grew merry and bright, 

And Timothy danced for sheer delight. 

"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick! 

He's crawling out of the duckweed." 


Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee, 

And doubled up, shaking silently, 

And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft 

And is sounded as if the old drake laughed. 

O, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond 


 Daddy fell into the pond!
