Mr. Hatter's Hats
By: Anja Meier
One day, Mr. Hatter went to the
store
Just to buy one hat
more.

He saw lots of
shoes
Of different
hues.

"No," he
said.
"I do not want shoes that are
red!"

He saw lots of
clothes
That go down to your
toes.

"No," he
said.
"I do not want clothes like this, that would be a
dread!"

Then he came across an
aisle,
That made him
smile.

"HATS!" he
said.
"I want them all!" Mr. Hatter said as he fled with all of his hats on his
head!

Rainbows
By: Anja Meier
High above the sky,
Are
magical rainbows.
Colors spill over the clouds,
Past the rays of the bright sun.

After a rain shower has past,
A
rainbow peeks out
from above.
Everyone looks up and smiles,
About
magical rainbows!


Humorous Poetry
Humorous poetry is often funny/silly
and doesn't have to make sense. These poems
also follow rhyme schemes and patterns.
Humorous Poetry
Flies
By: Anja Meier
Swat! Swat,
Went the fly mat.
"Oh, those annoying flies!"
Sighed Ms. Swatter as she fell to the side.

Swat! Swat,
Went the fly mat.
"Oooooops, I missed!"
She said as she hit her cat who hissed.

Swat! Swat,
Went the fly mat.
Ms. Swatter screamed when she saw a rat.
"I don't need this fly mat, where is my cat?"

Awful Ogres Breakfast
By: Jack Prelutsky
Oh, breakfast, lovely breakfast,
You're the meal I savor most.
I sip a bit of gargoyle bile
And chew some ghoul on toast.

I linger over scrambled legs,
Complete with pickled feet,
Then finish with a piping bowl
Of steamy SCREAM OF WHEAT.
Famous Couplet:
Peacock
By: Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
Peacock spreads his tail. Surprise!
A feather-ocean...full of eyes.

One-by-one, they stare at me.
I look at them and see the sea.

And suddenly, I've left the zoo.
I whirl through water, deep and blue.

My mind is fresh and watery-wild.
I feel like I'm a mermaid child.

I even ride a friendly whale
swimming here, in Peacock's tail.
Famous Haiku:
Over the Wintry Forest
By: Natsume Soseki
Famous Limerick:
There was a Young Lady whose chin...
By: Edward Lear
There was a Young Lady whose chin
Resembled the point of a pin:
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,
And played several tunes with her chin.
Famous Free Verse:
Fog
By: Carl Sandburg

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
The
End!
