Jubilate Agno by Christopher Smart

For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry....
For in his morning orisons he loves the sun and the sun loves him.
For he is of the tribe of Tiger.
For the Cherub Cat is a term of the Angel Tiger.
For he has the subtlety and hissing of a serpent, which in goodness he suppresses.
For he will not do destruction, if he is well-fed, neither will he spit without provocation.
For he purrs in thankfulness, when God tells him he's a good Cat.
For he is an instrument for the children to learn benevolence upon.
For every house is incomplete without him and a blessing is lacking in the spirit.

Christopher Smart

There was an Old Man of Jamaica by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of Jamaica,
Who suddenly married a Quaker;
But she cried out--'O lack!
I have married a black!'
Which distressed that Old Man of Jamaica.

Poor Crow! by Mary Mapes Dodge

Give me something to eat,
Good people, I pray;
I have really not had
One mouthful today!


I am hungry and cold,
And last night I dreamed
A scarecrow had caught meó
Good land, how I screamed!


Of one little children
And six ailing wives
(No, one wife and six children),
Not one of them thrives.


So pity my case,
Dear people, I pray;
Iím honest, and really
Iíve come a long way.

Leap Year Poem by Anonymous

Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November.
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone,
And that has twenty-eight days clear
And twenty-nine in each leap year.

Hush little baby, don't say a word by Anonymous

Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird.


And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.


And if that diamond ring turns to brass,
Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass.


And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat.


And if that billy goat won't pull,
Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull.


And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.


And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Papa's gonna buy you a horse and cart.


And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town!
