There is a lovely Lion
Jack Gillbard is his name
I thought I'd write about him
So he could have some fame

He's always making wooden things
He sells then at the Fair.
He's got a lovely smiley face
But he hasn't got much hair

He's always doing something
He's a busy as a bee.
He likes to help old people
Even though he's eighty three!

I wrote this litle poem
So I could say to you
Thankyou you very much Jack
For everything you do.

To Bruce &Sarah Gillbard in Australia a daughter EMMA JOY
