Poem for April Fools Day…Ladles and Jelly Spoons.

April is poetry month.

I found my copy of A ROCKET IN MY POCKET. The book was first published over 60 years ago. (It is older than me!…but I bet you can still find a copy in your library.) This was the first book I bought for myself from a school book fair when I was little. It is filled with poems rhymes and chants…many of them are very silly.

Here is a favorite poem that I memorized and would recite to myself and to everyone and anyone that came along…

Ladles and jelly spoons:
I come before you
To stand behind you
And tell you something
I know nothing about.

Next Thursday,
Which is Good Friday,
There’ll be a mothers’ meeting
For fathers only.

Wear your best clothes
If you haven’t any,
And if you can come
Please stay at home.

Admission is free;
Pay at the door.
Take a seat
And sit on the floor.

It makes no difference where you sit;
The man in the gallery is sure to spit.

Happy April Fools Day!

Find a silly poem and share it with a friend.

or borrow this one…enjoy…tcp
