Nonsense Rhymes for Kidz
Rhyming an ancient 'art'
Rhyming has been around, probably since the dawn of civilization as we know it. It is still strong today - because it works! Rhymes have a way of burrowing into your psyche and entrenching themselves there. Case in point, how is it that you often cannot remember what you said that was so very vital and important in that meeting last week ... and yet the words of those 'nursery rhymes' you learnt as a small child are still etched in indelible ink in your memory, never to be erased?
Let's face it - rhymes, for the most part, are just plain fun. What better way to entertain, teach and amuse the special children who are in our life.
Here's some 'random' rhymes written for my grandchildren who never cease to amaze and enchant me.
George the Cat
George the Cat was round and fat
He sat by the fire on a big red mat
He loved to sleep and dream of fish
For lunch or dinner they taste 'delish'!
I'm a humble bumble bee
working for my hive
Without the special work I do
the plants would not survive
I gather pollen here and there
helping make the honey
that's full of therapeutic powers
and best of all it's yummy
Still and quiet
Street lights sparkle
Clouds drift by
Soft breeze whispers
Clear night sky
My street is so exciting
Something happens every day
I love it that I live here
Never want to move away
My house is on a corner
And there's bush across the street
With lot's of birds and wild life there
It's really kind of neat
In the morning and the evening
Lots of people come and go
In the afternoon the school bus stops
And the kids all wave 'hello'
I like to sit on my front porch
As evening starts to fall
It's quiet and peaceful all around
You can hear the mopokes' call
