1. Title: “Two Little Dicky Birds”

Two little birds so small,
Perched upon a wall.
One named Peter, one named Paul,
Fly away, Peter, heed the call.

Soar through the sky, Paul,
Come back, Peter, stand tall.
Two little dicky birds, a charming thrall,
A tale of flight, a chirping sprawl.

2. Title: “Hoppity Tales”

Christopher Robin goes,
Hoppity, hoppity,
Hoppity, hoppity, hop.
Whenever I ask him.

Kindly to halt it, he
Insists he can’t possibly stop.
If he ceased hopping,
He wouldn’t get anywhere.

3. Title: “Growing Up at Six”

When I was one, life had just begun,
At two, I was nearly new under the sun.
Three brought a self hardly me,
Four, not much more could it be.

Five found me just alive,
But now at six, as clever as clever, I strive.
So, I’ll be six, now and forever,
A journey of growth, an endeavor.

4. Title: “Calendar Rhythms”

September boasts thirty days,
April, June, and November blaze.
February stands alone with twenty-eight,
All the others, thirty-one they state.

Yet, leap-year plays a special rhyme,
In February’s dance, days to climb.
A fleeting moment, an extra shine,
February’s days become twenty-nine.

Jack Sprat loved no fat,
His wife, no lean.
Together they dined,
A harmonious cuisine.

The other, greens so fair.
The platter, after their feast,
Gleamed with a joint release.

6. Title: “Ladybird Ladybird”

Ladybird, ladybird, fly to your nest,
The field mouse has gone to her rest.
Daisies are closing their sleepy red eyes,
As birds and bees under the night skies.

Ladybird, ladybird, with speckled wings,
Glowworm’s light in the evening clings.
Hasten away, before the damp starts,
To Oberon’s star, with magical hearts.

Old Mother Hubbard,
In the cupboard,
Found it bare, no treat to spare.
No bone to find.

Off to the market,
In daylight and dark it,
Brought joy back,
To her little pet’s shack.

Her eyes, so distinct in hue,
Surprised every viewer.
When wide open in view,
Startled, they withdrew.

A sight not easily addressed.
As they fled the unusual guest,
In shock, they confessed.

Raindrops fall with gentle sound,
On fields and trees, a dance profound.

Jump in puddles, splash away.
Nature’s rhythm, a soothing song,
Raindrops join, a dance lifelong.

Drop a penny in the old man’s hat.

Kindness and giving, let’s all share.
In the season of warmth and delight,
Spread love and goodwill, day and night.

Saturday’s child works with strength and flair.
Born on the Sabbath, gay and bright,
Bonny and blithe, a joyous light.

12. Title: “When Santa Comes To Our House”

When Santa visits our abode (point to the roof),
I wish to sneak a glance (peek through fingers),
Yet he won’t arrive, I know (shake head no),
Until deep sleep, I’ll rest my head.

Isn’t it quite peculiar,
Santa’s shyness, oh so sly,
No matter how we attempt,
He slips away, we can’t deny.

The cow, all red and white, so dear,
Gives cream with might, a treat so clear.
She roams in the open air, carefree,
Feasting on meadow flowers with glee.

Wandering low in pleasant light,
Among the meadow grass, a joyous sight.
Blown by winds and showered by rain,
The friendly cow graces the meadow terrain.

When I’m grown, so proud and tall,
I’ll stand strong and never fall.

In my world of pride and glee,
Guarding toys, just wait and see.
No meddling hands, no noise,
In my kingdom of grown-up toys.

In the spring, they’re quite a sight.
Easter joy is here to stay,
Let’s celebrate in a cheerful way.

Doctor Foster, journey keen,
To Glo’ster town, where raindrops preen.
Stepped in a puddle, oh, the woe,
To Glo’ster’s charm, he’d cease to go.

Rainy day and soggy plight,
Glo’ster tales in soft twilight.
Puddle’s tale, a cautionary lore,
Doctor Foster, forevermore.

Down they go, hail and snow,
Covering the ground below.
Freezes and sneezes, noses will blow,

Frosty flakes in the air,
Whirling, twirling everywhere.
Cold winds sing a winter’s song,
Nature’s chorus, pure and strong.

Goldy Locks, Goldy Locks,
Will you be mine?
No dishes to wash,
No swine to feed in line.

Sew a fine seam, take a sweet seat.
Feast on strawberries, sugar and cream,
In a world of whimsy, like a dream.

Jack and Jill climbed the hill,
Water pail, their quest to fulfill.
Jack tumbled down, broke his crown,
Jill followed with a tumble down.

Capered away from mishaps cast.
To bed he went, his head to mend,
Vinegar and brown paper, a healing blend.

A dunder storm, in a wild array.
Black and slow, it comes with might,
Stumbling down the hill, a thrilling sight.

A plunder storm, echoes abound.
A wonder storm, roaring loud and shrill,
Shaking window sills, a nature’s thrill!
