Amigurumi & Poetry

Amigurumi by Ana Paula Rimoli

Amigurumi by Ana Paula Rimoli

Do you know Robert Louis Stevenson as a poet?

Here, you’ll find several poems for children which help to understand the magic of Amigurumi Japanese tradition.

The Cow

The friendly cow, all red and white,

I love with all my heart:

She gives me cream with all her might,

To eat with apple tart.


She wanders lowing here and there,

And yet she cannot stray,

All in the pleasant open air,

The pleasant light of day;


And blown by all the winds that pass

Amigurumi by Ana Paula Rimoli

And wet with all the showers,

She walks among the meadow grass

And eats the meadow flowers.


The land of counterpane

When I was sick and lay a-bed,

I had two pillows at my head,

And all my toys beside me lay

To keep me happy all the day.


And sometimes for an hour or so

I watched my leaden soldiers go,

With different uniforms and drills,

Amigurumi by June Gilbank

Among the bedclothes, through the hills;


And sometimes sent my ships in fleets

All up and down among the sheets;

Or brought my trees and houses out,

And planted cities all about.


I was the giant great and still

That sits upon the pillow-hill,

And sees before him, dale and plain,

The pleasant land of counterpane.


Whole duty of Children

A child should always say what’s true,

And speak when he is spoken to,

And behave mannerly at table:

At least as far as he is able.


“Designing Amigurumi is very calming to just sit around with a hook some yarn and think about toys!” Ana Paula Rimoli:

“The word ‘amigurumi’ comes from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.” June Gilbank

“Amigurumi is a cute crocheted toy.” Armina
