Wonderland
Poem

Speak kindly to your little boy

And hug him when he cries.

Add kisses, kindness, time and love

Teach him to be wise.

 

Speak softly to your little girl

Poem

I am the word juggler.
I juggle the words
like swords.
I slice sense
with poetic license.

Poem

I am a guillemot
I use my bill a lot
I get the fish out of the wet
I eat my fill a lot.
I live on ledges

Vertical Edges

On 
Wards
Lofty

Oh,
Winged
Looker

Out
Witting
Low-life

Ooooh
Wooooooo
Language

Poem

Peter the orange parrot
had a very tiny beak,
unlike the other parrots
he was never heard to speak.
But they were never nasty to him,
Peter the non-talking parrot

Poem

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Scientists tell us what you are.

Hydrogen...and helium?

Oxygen and nitrogen...

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Poem

The light through the blind is a poem,

the way it illuminates air.

And the shadows that fall

on the floor and the wall

are signs that a poem is there.
