Before you say anything, I can’t help it that nothing really rhymes with H.
So, we had another poetry Friday, which mostly spilled into a poetry Monday. Running out of time on a lesson for a Friday is a terrible thing. The idea was to do the song “Down by the bay” as an introduction to silly rhyming, but right when I had gotten them to the point where they were actually rhyming things, Friday’s class was over. So, we had to readdress the subject today and basically jump right into limericks.
I feel certain there is a better way to get into limericks… as the actually sort of following the poem form rate from today was rather lower than the last two sets of poems.
But that being said, we have some really good limericks!
Allow me to share?There was an old male teacher with glasses who said: I must wear them in my classes Some naughty boys put them in a bucket of oils. At last he finds them on the grasses. -Walley There is a fox in a house Who is playing with a mouse Ask: Can you touch my ears? No, but you are my dear I can kiss your mouth. -Amy There was a girl with blond hair. She likes to travel everywhere Japan. India. American China. Thailand. England. The things she likes best is to share. -Celia Mo There was an old man who has got skillful hands he made his daughter lots of toys, which brought the girl joy he’s not only a father, but a life-long friend. -Doris There is a facilitator named Pip Who has a beautiful upper lip She can sing a song. It’s not very long. I don’t want her to leave us by ship. -Stacey Pretty cute, right? Here are my favorite not-quite’s. Here is a Walter Who lives in a city farther we wanted to drink water but it didn’t occur we couldn’t wait any longer he just wonder because he wasn’t sure where to get water -name redacted There is a man name Mike wherever he comes whenver he dreams As if he was always jokking! -name redacted
The rest of the poems fall on a spectrum somewhere between the man named Mike, Hamburgers in a cave, and the old teacher with glasses.
