Poem – Toyland


Toyland! Toyland!

Little girl and boy land,

While you dwell within it,

You are ever happy then.

Childhood’s joyland,

Mystic merry Toyland!

Once you pass its borders

You can ne’er return again!

-excerpt from “Toyland” from the 1903 musical Babes in Toyland. Book and lyrics by Glen MacDonough, music by Victor Herbert
