‘Wouldn’t It Be Funny If You Didn’t Have A Nose’ by Roger McGough

‘Wouldn’t it be funny if you didn’t have a nose?’

by Roger McGoughDSCF4821-001

“You couldn’t smell your dinner

If you didn’t have a nose

You couldn’t tell a dirty nappy

From a summer rose

You couldn’t smell the ocean

Or the traffic, I suppose

Oh wouldn’t it be funny

If you didn’t have a nose?…”

A favourite poem from child(and adult)hood, you can read the full poem here or borrow some of his fine work from Surrey Libraries.

Throughout April we want to know your favourite children’s poem ahead of the Surrey Libraries’ Children’s Book Award on the 6th May.
