"Who's Afraid" is a poem for children by L. Frank Baum. It is one of the two poems that is included in both By the Candelabra's Glare (1898) and Father Goose (1899) — the other being "Where Do They Go?"
The 18-line poem palliates the fears of childhood, beginning with the villains of fairy tales —
- Ev'ry Giant now is dead —
- Jack has cut off ev'ry head.
- Ev'ry Goblin, known of old,
- Perished years ago, I'm told
— and continuing on to elements of the modern world: burglars, lions, and grizzly bears.
"Who's Afraid" is also one of the poems set to music in The Songs of Father Goose (1900).
