The Goops

By: Gelett Burgess

The Goops they lick their fingers,
    And the Goops they lick their knives;
They spill their broth on the tablecloth-
    Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
The Goops they talk while eating,
    And loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I'm glad that I
    Am not a Goop - are you?

Apple Tree
By: Aileen Fisher

wine sop apple

How do apple trees
Know how
To hang the apples
To a bough?
They haven't hands
to glue them on
or nail them on
or screw them on
or pin them on
or saw them on
Who holds them
While they grow them on?
I never thought
of it till now
I wonder
did the apple bough?

Lunch Box
By: Eve Merriam

Lunch box, lunch box
what's for lunch?
Peanut butter sandwich
and celery to crunch
Carrots and banana
and an apple to munch.
A bite and a bite
and a bite and a BITE
Now I'm heavy
and my lunchbox is light.

In a giant fruit basket
Here's what I found:
Grapes and grapefruit
Plums, sweet and round
Strawberries, blueberries
Raspberries too
Dates and figs
As sticky as glue!
Apples and pineapples,
Cherries and pears
Peaches with skin
With soft, fuzz hairs
Apricot, oranges
A lemon and lime
Watermelon, cantaloupe
Fresh in their prime
Ripe bananas
A juicy tangerine
The tastiest fruit basket
I've ever seen.
