Gonnae Put the Cat Oot by Stuart Macfarlane


Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís no that much tae ask.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís a simple enough task.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís all that I desire.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
The bloody things oan fire.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)†

Shall I compare thee to a summers day by William Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed.
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Shall I compare thee to a summers day
Sonnet 18
William Shakespeare

There was an Old Man of the West by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of the West,
Who wore a pale plum-coloured vest;
When they said, 'Does it fit?'
He replied, 'Not a bit!'
That uneasy Old Man of the West.

Wee Willie Winkie by Anonymous

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,
'Are the children all in bed, for now it's eight o'clock?'

A Wolf Is at the Laundromat by Jack Prelutsky

A wolf is at the Laundromat,
it's not a wary stare-wolf,
it's short and fat, it tips its hat,
unlike a scary glare-wolf.


It combs its hair, it clips its toes,
it is a fairly rare wolf,
that's only there to clean its clothesó
it is a wash-and-wear-wolf.
