Short memory verses for kids

The shape of things

Fluffy white across the sky

What shape do I see?

A monkey? Or a cat?

A big tall apple tree?

A balloon? Or a pig?

An owl that can fly?

I love to watch the shapes

As clouds go rolling by.

What a BUG

"It's a bug," said father.

"It has wings" said Joe.

Mother said, "Look, six legs!

What else do we know?"

"It eats other bugs.

The harmful ones, you see.

It's also called an insect,"

Said my Grandpa Lee.

Little Jane exclaimed,

"It's red with small black dots."

(Jane is pretty smart

For such a little tot.)

Then we all smiled,

As the bug crawled away.

We called out loud to her,

"Oh ladybug, please stay!"

No One Else Like Me

I am a special kid

No one else is just like me.

My body is my own

It's special, don't you see?

I have two busy hands,

And two active feet.

My mom seems to think

That I am pretty neat.

I use my special mouth

To smile and to sing,

To talk with my friends

And eat yummy things.

When it's time for bed

I use my own mouth too,

To whisper "Goodnight --

I'll always love you too."

Dog Named Daisy Mae

I have a dog named

Daisy Mae

Who just loves to

Sleep all day.

If I say "Come on

Let's play,"

She looks, then sniffs,

And turns away.

But up she jumps on her

Four feet,

When it's time to

Eat, eat, eat.

"Chomp, chomp,"

Then a slurp.

Finally a great big


Sleepy, silly, Daisy Mae

She loves me I am sure.

She's ready with a big wet kiss

When I come through the door.

Me and My Skeleton

My skeleton is made of bones

Lots of them, I know.

They're in my arms and legs

And my fingers and my toes.

My skeleton holds me up

So I can walk and run

And do lots of other things

That are so very fun.

My skeleton keeps growing

Right along with me.

I never want to lose it

'Cause then where would I be?

A Farm Visit!

Let's visit a farm.

What will we see?

Cows, goats, and pink pigs,

Soft yellow chick-ies.

Let's visit a farm.

What will we feel?

A velvet-y nose,

Wool that is real.

Let's visit a farm.

What will we hear?

Oink, Oink, cluck, cluck,

Mooooo -- loud and clear!

Let's visit a farm

On a sunny day

Eat crunchy apples,

Sit on bales of hay.

About the Teeth of Sharks

The thing about a shark is—teeth,

One row above, one row beneath.

Now take a close look. Do you find

It has another row behind?

Still closer—here, I'll hold your hat:

Has it a third row behind that?

Now look in and...Look out! Oh my,

I'll never know now! Well, goodbye.


Chipmunks jump, and

Greensnakes slither.

Rather burst than

Not be with her.

Bluebirds fight, but

Bears are stronger.

We've got fifty

Years or longer.

Hoptoads hop, but

Hogs are fatter.

Nothing else but

Us can matter.

Adventures Of Isabel

Isabel met an enormous bear,

Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;

The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,

The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous.

The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,

How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you!

Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry.

Isabel didn't scream or scurry.

She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,

Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.

Once in a night as black as pitch

Isabel met a wicked old witch.

the witch's face was cross and wrinkled,

The witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled.

Ho, ho, Isabel! the old witch crowed,

I'll turn you into an ugly toad!

Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,

Isabel didn't scream or scurry,

She showed no rage and she showed no rancor,

But she turned the witch into milk and drank her.

Isabel met a hideous giant,

Isabel continued self reliant.

The giant was hairy, the giant was horrid,

He had one eye in the middle of his forehead.

Good morning, Isabel, the giant said,

I'll grind your bones to make my bread.

Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,

Isabel didn't scream or scurry.

She nibled the zwieback that she always fed off,

And when it was gone, she cut the giant's head off.

Isabel met a troublesome doctor,

He punched and he poked till he really shocked her.

The doctor's talk was of coughs and chills

And the doctor's satchel bulged with pills.

The doctor said unto Isabel,

Swallow this, it will make you well.

Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,

Isabel didn't scream or scurry.

She took those pills from the pill concocter,

And Isabel calmly cured the doctor.

The Parakeets

They talk all day

and when it starts to get dark

they lower their voices

to converse with their own shadows

and with the silence.

They are like everybody

—the parakeets—

all day chatter,

and at night bad dreams.

With their gold rings

on their clever faces,

brilliant feathers

and the heart restless

with speech...

They are like everybody,

—the parakeets—

the ones that talk best

have separate cages.
