Children's Poetry: One More for the Stairs and Two More

  • In the comments on yesterday's kid's poetry selection, Anthony gives us a version of The Man Who Wasn't There that he learned from a friend when he was in high school. How's this for a poem to amuse your kids?
    Yesterday upon the stair,
    I met a man who wasn't there.
    He wasn't there again today,
    He must be from the CIA!
  • Kim from The Upward Call posts The Highwayman, a poem she first learned of in grade 7.
  • Kim of Hireath posts one from McGuffey's Primer, a lesson in verse for everyone.
Have you posted a poem for children? A poem that your children like? A poem that you liked as a child? Or maybe you are a child, and you've posted a poem that you like! Please send me the link by email or in the comments of this post and I'll link to you in the next Children's Poetry post.
