The Kitten and The Falling Leaves by William Wordsworth

See the kitten on the wall, sporting with the leaves that fall,
Withered leaves--one--two--and three, from the lofty elder-tree!
Through the calm and frosty air, of this morning bright and fair...
--But the kitten, how she starts; Crouches, stretches, paws, and darts!
First at one, and then its fellow, just as light and just as yellow;
There are many now--now one--now they stop and there are none;
What intenseness of desire, in her upward eye of fire!

With a tiger-leap half way, now she meets the coming prey,
Lets it go as fast, and then, has it in her power again:
Now she works with three or four, like an Indian Conjuror;
Quick as he in feats of art, far beyond in joy of heart ...

There was a crooked man by Anonymous

There was a crooked man,
and walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Banish Blue Days With This Mantra: by Stuart Macfarlane

No matter what the world throws at me,
No matter what goes wrong,
No matter who tries to upset me,
I will not cry . . . well not for long!

Laughing Time by William Jay Smith

It was laughing time, and the tall Giraffe
Lifted his head, and began to laugh:


Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!


And the Chimpanzee on the gingko tree
Swung merrily down with a Tee Hee Hee:


Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!


“It’s certainly not against the law!”
Croaked Justice Crow with a loud guffaw:


Haw! Haw! Haw! Haw!


The dancing Bear who could never say “No”
Waltzed up and down on the tip of his toe:


Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!


The Donkey daintily took his paw,
And around they went: Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!


Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!


The Moon had to smile as it started to climb;
All over the world it was laughing time!


Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw!
Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

The Road not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
