A LIGHT EXISTS IN SPRING
by Emily Dickinson
 
A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period --
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay --

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

WHO AM I?
by Anonymous

Pretty wings I have four – but
Like a bird I can not soar.
Little feet I have six – but
On the street I do not fix.

In the air I can fly – but
I am not a housefly.
I suck honey, you can see – but
I am not a tiny bee.

I am very light and bright.
You can not catch me in my flight.
Can you, can you find me out?
Come to the garden round about.

ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL
by Cecil Frances Alexander
 
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

THE WHITE WINDOW
By James Stephens

The Moon comes every night to peep
Through the window where I lie:
But I pretend to be asleep;
And watch the Moon go slowly by,
And she never makes a sound!

She stands and stares! And then she goes
To the house that's next to me,
Stealing by on tippy-toes;
To peep at folk asleep maybe
And she never makes a sound!

Jim
By Hilaire Belloc

There was a Boy whose name was Jim.
His Friends were very good to him.
They gave him Tea, and Cakes, and Jam,
And slices of delicious Ham,
And Chocolate with pink inside
And little Tricycles to ride,
And read him Stories through and through,
An even too him to the Zoo-
But there it was the dreadful Fate him,
Befell him, which I now relate.

You know or at least you ought to know,
For I have often told you so-
That Children never are allowed
To leave their Nurses in a Crowd;
Now this was Jim's especial Foible,
He ran away when he was able,
And on this inauspicious day
He slipped his hand and ran away!

He hadn't gone a yard when-Bang
With open Jaws, a lion sprang,
And hungrily began to eat
The Boy : beginning at his feet.
Now, just imagine how it feels
When first your toes and the your heels,
And then by gradual degrees,
Your skins and ankles, calves and knees
Are slowly eaten, bit by bit.
No wonder Jim detested it!
No wonder that he shouted ‘Hi!’

The Honest Keeper heard his cry,
Though very fat he almost ran
To help the little gentleman.
'Ponto!' he ordered as he came
(For Ponto was the Lion's name),
'Ponto" he cried, with angry Frown,
'Let go, Sir! Down, Sir! Put it down!'
The Lion made a sudden stop,
He let the Dainty Morsel drop,
And slunk reluctant to his Cage,
Snarling with Disappointed Rage.
But when he bent him over Jim,
The Honest Keeper's Eyes were dim.
The Lion having reached his Head,
The Miserable Boy was dead!

When Nurse informed his Parents, they
Were more Concerned than I can say:-
His Mother, as She dried her eyes,
Said, 'Well-it gives me no surprise,
He would not do as he was told’
His Father, who was self-controlled,
Bade all the children round attend
To James's miserable end,
And always keep a-hold of Nurse
For fear of finding something worse.

AT THE SEASIDE
by Robert Louis Stevenson
 
When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.
My holes were empty like a cup,
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.

YOU ARE OLD FATHER WILLIAM
By Lewis Carroll

‘You are old, father William,’ the young man said,
‘And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head-
Do you think, at your age, it is right?’

‘In my youth,’ father William replied to his son,
‘I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again.’

‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘as I mentioned before,
And you have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door-
Pray what is the reason for that?’

‘In my youth,’ said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
‘I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment-one shilling a box-
Allow me to sell you a couple?’-

‘You are old,’ said the youth, and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak-
Pray, how did you manage to do it?’

‘In my youth,' said his father, I took to the law,’
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life.’

‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose-
What made you so awfully clever?'

‘I have answered three questions, and that is enough,’
Said his father. ‘Don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off or I'll kick you down stairs.’

AT THE ZOO
by William Thackeray
 

First I saw the white bear, then I saw the black;
Then I saw the camel with a hump upon his back;
Then I saw the grey wolf, with mutton in his maw;
Then I saw the wombat waddle in the straw;
Then I saw the elephant a-waving of his trunk;
Then I saw the monkeys-mercy, how unpleasantly they-smelt!

LET ME LIVE
by Anonymous

Once I was a tiny seed.
Mother Nature cared my need.
I grew up as a shady tree.
Now my age is twenty three.

I have branches so many.
For children to play in company,
I feed worms with tiny figs.
I make homes with tiny twigs.

I am for the resting herds.
Also for the poor shepherds.
People breathe the air I give.
Why do not people let me live.
