This is a limerick inspired by the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Suess.
Sam I Am
by Rebecca J. Gomez
There once was a fellow named Sam
who loved to eat green eggs and ham.
All day and all night
he said, "Please take a bite!"
But I told him, "No way, Sam I Am!"

Look what I spotted while walking today:
Colorful proof spring is now on its way.
Crouched on my knees, with my camera in focus
I captured this bee sipping lunch from a crocus.
A poem from the book Pocket Poems, selected by Bobbi Katz and illustrated by Marilyn Hafner.
From Did You Ever Think
by Bobbi Katz
No one has a fingerprint
just like you.
No one smells exactly
the way that you do!
There are "look-alikes" and people
with the very same name.
But no two people are
exactly the same!
"Miss Boye was my childhood librarian. I discovered and purchased her book of poems written 1936-1956."
From Poems by Inger Boye, Children's Librarian, circa 1936
A garden full of flowers,
Tiny little sprouts,
Closed and half-opened,
Flowers of all colors,
Of all shades,
Of all forms;
Fragrant and lovely,
Dirt that is rich,
Dirt that is poor.
That is the field
In a children's library.
The Gardener -
A children's librarian...
...A work of love.
A poem that her kindergarten students enjoy.
by Shel Silverstein
I have a Band-Aid on my finger,
One on my knee, and one on my nose,
One on my heel, and two on my shoulder,
Three on my elbow, and nine on my toes.
Two on my wrist, and one on my ankle,
One on my chin, and one on my thigh,
Four on my belly, and five on my bottom,
One on my forehead, and one on my eye.
One on my neck, and in case I might need 'em
I have a box full of thirty-five more.
But oh! I do think it's sort of a pity
I don't have a cut or a sore!
Do you have a poem in your "pocket" today? We'd love to read it!
