The lady and the crocodile

The Lady and the Crocodile

She sailed away

On a sunny summer day,

On the back of a crocodile.

"You see," said she,

"He's as tame as tame can be,

I'll ride him down the Nile."

The croc winked his eye

As she bade them goodbye,

Wearing a happy smile.

At the end of the ride,

The lady was inside,

And the smile was on the crocodile!

  • Can often be found in poetry

  • See if you can find the rhyming words in the following poems


The itsy bitsy spider

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout,

Down came the rain & washed the spider out.

Out came the sun & dried up all the rain,

And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.


Three little kittens

Three Little Kittens

Three little kittens,

They lost their mittens,

And they began to cry,

Oh mother dear,

We sadly fear,

That we have lost our mittens.

What! Lost your mittens,

You naughty kittens!

Then you shall have no pie.

Meow, meow, meow,

No, you shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,

They found their mittens,

And they began to cry,

Oh, mother dear,

See here, see here,

We have found our mittens.

What! Found your mittens,

You silly kittens!

Then you shall have some pie.

Purr-r, purr-r, purr-r,

Oh, let us have some pie.


Make new friends

Make New Friends

Make new friends,

but keep the old.

One is silver,

And the other gold.

A circle is round,

it has no end.

That's how long,

I want to be your friend.


Rhythm

Rhythm

  • The pattern of sound in a line, usually based on stressed & unstressed syllables.

  • When you listen to many poems, the rhythm or beat jumps right out at you. In fact some poems have such a strong rhythm that you start tapping your toe or clapping your hands.

  • See if you can tap, clap, or snap to the rhythm in the following poems.


Here comes

Here Comes

Here comes summer,

Here comes summer,

Chirping robin, budding rose.

Here comes summer,

Here comes summer,

Gentle showers, summer clothes.

Here comes summer,

Here comes summer—

Whoosh—shiver—there it goes.

By Shel Silverstein


What did

What Did?

What did the carrot say to the wheat?

“’Lettuce’ rest, I’m feeling ‘beet.’”

What did the paper say to the pen?

“I feel quite all ‘write,’ my friend.”

What did the teapot say to the chalk?

Nothing, you silly…teapots can’t talk!

By Shel Silverstein


In search of cinderella

In Search of Cinderella

From dusk to dawn,

From town to town,

Without a single clue,

I seek the tender, slender foot

To fit this crystal shoe.

From dusk to dawn,

I try it on

Each damsel that I meet.

And I still love her so, but oh,

I’ve started hating feet.

By Shel Silverstein
