The Big Bad Wolf

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘The Big Bad Wolf’

The Big Bad Wolf
came out to play,
with three little piggy’s
for the day.

First he would huff
and then give a puff,
to blow their house down
but the last was too tough.

When Sunday came round
He was really quite bored.
he fancied a change,
and a chance for reward.

He decided to help,
re-build the pigs houses.
So he set off to work,
in check shirt and brown trousers.

Wolf smiled as he worked,
and sang a sweet song.
The pigs were impressed,
and they all sang along.

As they all worked together,
the house was soon finished.
The pigs gave their thanks
yet Wolf’s mood had diminished

An idea came to mind, and a sly smile crossed his lips
as he left with their thanks, and them calling him winner.
But standing outside he took one giant breath,
And with a huff and a puff, there was roast pork for dinner.

Beware of the Big Bad Wolf, make sure he does not come to blow your house down. Call back later for more poems. Don’t forget to SMILE!

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘Highly Contagious’

It’s too late,
I’ve caught it,
the blame is on you.
I said “It’s contagious.”
So what do you do,
your smile it just broadens
I’m taken right in,
and now I have caught it
your great cheeky grin.
Highly Contagious!

No Birds.

No birds were there singing this morning,
as the new day around us was dawning.
It’s raining outside,
in their nests they do hide,
snuggled up in their down and just yawning.

Rainbows.

Today I am the soft summer rain,
You are my sweet golden sunshine.
Together we’ll build us a rainbow,
to last, a life time.

The Birds.

I heard the birds singing since dawn.
So I rose from my bed with a yawn,
as I stepped out my door
I said “Please sing some more.
Then I’ll join you for drinks on the lawn”.

Thank you for visiting

Poems To Fall In Love With
chosen and illustrated by Chris Riddell
Macmillan Children’s Books

I’d already fallen in love with a good number of the poems Chris Riddell has included in this superb collection, but finding them here is still as much a joy as discovering the unfamiliar ones he’s chosen.

One of the latter in the first section Love and Friendship is Neil Gaiman’s Locks, inspired by the story of the Three Bears. It begins and ends, ‘We owe it to each other to tell stories.’ Powerful and very moving it was written by Gaiman for his then very young daughter.

Another new one to delight me was A.F.Harrold’s Postcards From The Hedgehog. The prickly writer is Simon and in his second card he writes this: ‘Dear Mum, / Lovely weather today. / I saw a really pretty girl. / Not sure how to approach her…

Have Fun with Children’s
Poetry

By Leslie C. Halpern

When I tell people that I’m president of the Orlando
Area Poets, write children’s poetry books, perform with a poetry ensemble, and once
worked with a Shakespearean acting troupe, they usually roll their eyes and tell
me they don’t like poetry. That’s usually because as children they never
learned to understand the language of poems.

Adults can make poetry fun and educational for children
by introducing age-appropriate poems to youngsters in entertaining ways.
Infants respond to hearing rhymed poems and looking at illustrations. As soon
as a child can speak, he or she can explain what pictures mean and guess what happens
next. By being active listeners, children learn to decode language at an early
age and develop a life-long love of words. Adding sounds effects as you read to
children (such as making funny sounds, reading with an accent, including…
