Competition of readers
-Good morning boys and girls!
Good morning now.
Eat breakfast,dinner too,
Good morning now.
-We shall recite English poems and find out who can do it very well.
Away from you,I hold hands with the air,
Your imagined untouchable hand.Not there,
Your fingrers braid with mine as I walk
Far away in my heart,you start to talk
I squeeze the air,kicking th auburn leaves,
Your hand is holding mine,the way
It would if you were here.What do you say?
In my heart?I bend my head to listen,then feel
Your hand reaches out and strokes my hair,as real
As the wind caressing the fretful trees above
Now I can hear you clearly,speaking of love
(Carol Ann Duffy)
Slowly,silently,now the moon
Walks the night in her silver spoon;
This way,and that,she peers,she sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch
Couched in his kennel,like a log
With paws of silver sleeps the dog
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep.
Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep
A harvest mouse goes scampering by
With silver claims and silver eye
And moveless fish in the water gleam.
By silver reeds in a silver stream
Walter de la More
It’s high time for Ted to go to bed
It’s time for Tina to have a dinner
It’s time for Lucy to feed her pussy
It’s time for Sue to come to you
It’s time for Ruth to tell the truth
It’s time for Marty to come to the party
It’s time for Bess to press her dress
It’s high time for Steve to say goodbuy and leave
It’s high time for Chris to learn about this
It’s high time for us to come to the class.
He shines like a candle and melts slowly
He is white and black and gets smaller all the time
He is as white and black and gets smaller all the time
He is as white as feather and white horses and snow
He glows in the dark like a glow-worm
He stands on a flat place and makes a shadow in the light
He crumples in a circle like a circus tent
He turns to ice and slush like a camel’s hump.
He runs away like milk and melts like moonlight in sunshine
In the morning he is gone like the moon
The Little Jumping Girls
From this town into the next today
Jump,jump,jump,jump over the moon
Jump all the morning and all the moon
Jump,jump,jump,jump all night
Won’t our mother be in a fight?
Jump,jump,jump over the sea
What wonderful wonders we shall sea
Jump,jump,jump,jump far away
And all come home some other day

“Goodbuy my children buy
