The ABC

The ABC

‘Twas midnight in the schoolroom
And every desk was shut
When suddenly from the alphabet
Was heard a loud “Tut-Tut!”Said A to B, “I don’t like C;
His manners are a lack.
For all I ever see of C
Is a semi-circular back!”

“I disagree,” said D to B,
“I’ve never found C so.
From where I stand he seems to be
An uncompleted O.”

C was vexed, “I’m much perplexed,
You criticise my shape.
I’m made like that, to help spell Cat
And Cow and Cool and Cape.”

“He’s right” said E; said F, “Whoopee!”
Said G, “‘Ip, ‘Ip, ‘ooray!”
“You’re dropping me,” roared H to G.
“Don’t do it please I pray.”

“Out of my way,” LL said to K.
“I’ll make poor I look ILL.”
To stop this stunt J stood in front,
And presto! ILL was JILL.

“U know,” said V, “that W
Is twice the age of me.
For as a Roman V is five
I’m half as young as he.”

X and Y yawned sleepily,
“Look at the time!” they said.
“Let’s all get off to beddy byes.”
They did, then “Z-z-z.”

Day Care Provider Poem

“Although you’re not their mother,
You care for them each day.
You cuddle, sing, and read to them
And watch them as they play.
You see each new accomplishment
You help them grow and learn
You understand their language
And you listen with concern.
They come to you for comfort
And you kiss away their tears
They proudly show their work to you
You give the loudest cheers!
No, you are not their mother
But your role is just as strong
You nurture them and keep them safe
Though not for long…
You know someday the time will come
When you will have to part
But you know each child you’ve cared for
Is forever in your heart!”

Ode To Day Care

“Little children come to me

for hugs and books and such.

I care for all their simple needs

and also fix them lunch.

I pick up toys, mop up spills

and often dry their tears.

I change their diapers, settle fights,

and kiss away their fears.

I tie their shoes, zip their coats,

and push them on the swing.

I really love these kids, you see,

but there is just one thing.

Call me Mom, or Aunt, or Gayle-

those names just might fit.

But please don’t call me sitter,

because I never get to sit!”
