New & Collected Poems for Childrenby Carol Ann DuffyDimples
When I’m scared the Monsters are thrilling me. When I’m cold the North Wind is chilling me. When I’m pretty some ribbons are frilling me. When I’m fibbing my teacher is grilling me. When I’m sad my salt tears are spilling free. When I’m brave my courage is willing me. When I fidget my Grandma is stilling me. When I’m hungry my Mother is filling me. When I’m spending the toy shop is billing me. When I score the referee’s nilling me. When I’m ill the doctor is pilling me. When it’s dawn the sparrows are trilling me. But when I laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh MY DIMPLES ARE KILLING ME!

Dimples

When I’m scared the Monsters are thrilling me. 
When I’m cold the North Wind is chilling me. 
When I’m pretty some ribbons are frilling me. 
When I’m fibbing my teacher is grilling me. 
When I’m sad my salt tears are spilling free. 
When I’m brave my courage is willing me. 
When I fidget my Grandma is stilling me. 
When I’m hungry my Mother is filling me. 
When I’m spending the toy shop is billing me. 
When I score the referee’s nilling me. 
When I’m ill the doctor is pilling me. 
When it’s dawn the sparrows are trilling me. 
But when I laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh 
and laugh MY DIMPLES ARE KILLING ME!
