Fireworks
Poet: Dorothy Aldis


Just see those pinwheels whirling round
Spitting sparkles on the ground,
And watch that rocket whose so high,
Then turn to flowers in the sky -
Green and yellow, blue and red.
And look at me still not in bed!


Halloween Night
Poet: Charlotte Yoder Cutler


On Halloween my friends and I
Dress up in frightening clothes:
We each put on a funny face
With an e-nor-mous nose.

We ring our neighbors' doorbells,
And they get an awful fright
To see such scary creatures
Standing there at night!


Questions On The Past
Poet Unknown


Can you put the spider's web back iu its place, that once has been swept away?
Can you put the apple again on the bough, which fell at our feet to-day?
Can you put the lily-cup back on the stem, and cause it to live and grow?
Can you mend the butterfly's broken wing, that you crushed with a hasty blow!
Can you put the bloom again on the grape, or the grape again on the vine?
Can you put the dewdrops bark on the flower, and make them sparkle and shine!
Can you put the petals back on the rose? If you could, would it smell as sweet?
Can you put the flour again in the husk, and show me the ripened wheat?
Can you put the kernel back in the nut, or the broken egg in its shell?
Can you put the honey back in the comb, and cover with wax each cell?
Can you put the perfume back in the vase, when once it has sped away?
Can you put the corn-silk back on the corn, or the down on the catkins- -say?
You think that my questions are trifling, dear?
Let me ask you another one:
Can a hasty word ever be unsaid, or a deed unkind undone?


God's Gifts
Poet: Nancy Napier


God gave me eyes that I may see
The wonderful things surround me

God gave me ears that I may hear
Rich melodies and voices dear.

God gave me lips to speak and sing
And tell of every lovely thing.

God gave me hands that I may do
the useful things He wants me to.

God gave me legs and two swift feet
That I may skip along the street.

God gives to me strength from above
And fills me full of peace and love!


When I'm A Man
Poet: Clara Lundie Crawford


I can write with a pencil,
Truly I can,
But I'm going to write with ink
When I'm a man.

I can write with a pencil,
Though I've only just begun,
And to write with ink
Would be much more fun.

I like to watch my daddy
Use his fountain pen,
He just writes and writes,
And fills it up again!

I can write with a pencil,
Truly I can,
But I'm always going to write
With ink - when I'm a man!


Nighttime
Poet: Dale Asher Jacobus


When Mother turns the lights all out
And tip-toes down the stairs;
After she has tucked me in and heard my little prayers,
The darkness seems so soft and kind,

And somehow I don't seem to mind.
I shut my eyes with all my might
And when I open them - it's light.


If I Had A Million Dollars
Poet: Linda Markey


If I had a million dollars,
I'd buy a Cadillac car;
I'd go to a dramatic school
And become a movie star.

If I had a million dollars,
I'd do so many things -
I'd take a trip in an airplane
With great-big silver wings.

But I haven't a million dollars,
And I haven't a Cadillac car;
So I guess I'll just be happy
With things the way they are.


Honeybee
Poet: Emily Jo Jackson


I saw a little honeybee
Getting honey from our tree;
He wasn't very big, you see -
Just a tiny honeybee.

Dressed in coat of black and yellow,
He was quite a handsome fellow;
Just when I was hoping he would stay,
He buzzed good-by and flew away.


Sun
Poet: Diane Coe


Kittens and puppies are happy;
Bears are jolly, too.
But I think clowns make the sun shine,
Don't you?
