One of my friends commented about poetry on her fb status. I'm pretty sure she was dealing w/ serious poetry... but I'd much prefer some fun stuff... like...
This from "Runny Babbit" a Billy Sook by Shel Silverstein
'Kugs and Hisses'
Runny said, "I'm lonesome,
I feel so glad and soomy.
I need some kugs and hisses --
Now, who's gunna give 'em to me?"
"I will," said Polly Dorkupine,
"'Cause you're cute as a rug in a bug."
Said Runny, "Well, I'll kake the tiss,
But never hind the mug."
Oh, the fun of children's poetry... or should I say, pildren's choetry. ;-)
Shel's always good for a smile!
Do you have a favourite children's poem? or poem from your childhood?
