The Letters At School
Poet: Unknown


One day the letters went to school.
And tried to teach each other.
They got so mixed, 'twas really hard
To pick one from the other.

A went in first, and Z went last;
The rest were all between them —
K, H, and M, and N, O, P,—
I wish you could have seen them.

B, C, D, E, and J, K, H,
Soon jostled well their betters;
Q, R, S, T— I grieve to say-
Were very naughty letters.

Of course, ere long they came to words —
What else could be expected!
Till E made D, J, C, and T,
Decidedly dejected.

Now through it all the consonants
Were rudest and uncouthest,
While all the pretty vowel girls
Were certainly the smoothest.

The nimble U kept far from Q,
With face demure and moral,
Because, she said, " we are, we two.
So apt to start a quarrel!"

But spiteful P said, "Pooh for U"
(Which made her feel quite bitter).
And, calling O, L, E, to help,
He really tried to hit her.

Cried A, "Now, E and C come here!
If both will aid a minute,
Good P will join in making peace!
Or else the mischiefs in it.'"

And smiling E, the ready sprite,
Said, "Yes, and count me double."
This done, sweet peace shone o'er the scene.
And gone was all the trouble!

Meanwhile, while U and P made up.
The cos'nants looked about them,
And kissed the vowels, for, you see.
They couldn't do without them.


Love YOU More Verses
by Catherine Pulsifer


A good day we wish for you
I am a little bit late that's true
But I would never forget you
So this poem is written just for you
We love you more and more that is true.


We hope this day is full of fun
We hope that you see the sun
We hope you are happy too
We love you more our little boo-boo


I write these poems just to say
I love you more and more each day
I love you more in every way
That's the end of the poems for the day


Up to the Ceiling
by Edgar A. Guest


Up to the ceiling
And down to the floor,
Hear him now squealing
And calling for more.
Laughing and shouting,
"Away up!" he cries.
Who could be doubting
The love in his eyes.
Heigho! my baby!
And heigho! my son!
Up to the ceiling
Is wonderful fun.

Bigger than daddy
And bigger than mother;
Only a laddie,
But bigger than brother.
Laughing and crowing
And squirming and wriggling,
Cheeks fairly glowing,
Now cooing and giggling!
Down to the cellar,
Then quick as a dart
Up to the ceiling
Brings joy to the heart.
