Troll Hole

Once upon a time there lived a troll who owned a hole.

The poor troll’s hole was a small section of the driveway and looked like charcoal.

Three little kids continually rode their bikes and scooters through the hole with no control.

This forced the troll to man the hole like she was on patrol.

Every so often while out for a stroll, the troll would catch a kid in her hole.

For each capture, the troll requested a kiss for the child to be out on parole.

Over the years, these kids and the troll loved this game with all their heart and soul.

**True story. I can’t remember how Troll Hole originated, but the aforementioned Troll brings us hours of fun and is a legend in our house.

As a child, I lived next door to the library, my mom owned a bookstore during my middle school years, and I've spent the last 22 years teaching reading and writing. Loving books was no accident!

  1. The troll who owns the hole needs a vole and mole
    to keep her company and help console
    when things go awry or there’s justice to dole
    Love the poem!
