Its all Colleens fault!
I wanted to try something different from me, not sure what I did here. Reading Colleen about her suggestion of either “found OR magnetic poetry” OR Golden Shovel but below is where I found the poems in a child’s poetry book. Also, a little about the authors and their works.
To get the syllables to work, I had to change the words here and there; anyway, thank you for your patience in reading this!
First line from poem by Jack Prelutsky Bees Every bee that ever was was partly sting and partly ... buzz.
Second Line poet Laura Richards I dreamed I was a cave boy And lived in a cave, A mammoth for my saddle horse, A monkey for my slave. And through the tree-fern forests. A-riding I would go, When I was once a cave boy, A million years ago.
Third Line poet Eugene Field his poem The Sugar-Plum Tree There are marshmallows, gumdrops, and peppermint canes, etc. etc In the garden of Shut-Eye Town. Fifth Line —Someone came came knocking poet Walter DeLa Mare poet Rebecca McCann So out ran young Joe, Acting foolish and wild, And everyone watched him But nobody smiled.
Same unknown poet who composed poem titled The Light-Hearted Fairy — Oh, who is so merry so merry, heigh ho! As the light-hearted fairy? Heigh-ho, Heigh ho He dances and sings to the sound of his wings,
Poet William Allingham Poem titled the Fairies Down along the rocky shore Some make their home they live on crispy pancakes
My line was taken from Wynken, Blynken, and Nod by Eugene Field Sailed off in a wooden shoe and finally, that last line was taken from The Merry-Go-Round by poet Myra Cohn Livingston The merry-go-round whirls round and round in a giant circle on the ground. And the horses run an exciting race while the wind blows music in your face Then the whole world spins to a colored tune but the ride is over much too soon
Ta Da! ♫ My CREATION
Every bee that ever was Lived a million years ago In the Garden of Shut-Eye Heigh-ho! Someone did appear knocking But only nobody smiled To the sound of fuzzy wings Heigh-ho! They lived on crispy pancakes Sailed off in a wooden shoe The ride was over too soon Heigh-ho Heigh-ho
