This week we’re going to read and listen to some food poems!
Take a listen here to Jack Prelutsky’s poem Bleezer’s Ice Cream
Egg Thoughts by Russell Hoban
Soft-boiled
I do not like the way you slide,
I do not like your soft inside,
I do not like you many ways,
And I could on for many days
without a soft-boiled egg.
Sunny-Side Up
With their yoks and whites all runny
They are looking at me funny.
Sunny-Side Down
Lying face-down on the plate
On their stomachs there they wait.
Poached
Poached eggs on toast, why do you shiver
With such a funny little quiver?
Scrambled
I eat as well as I am able,
But some falls underneath the table.
Hard-boiled
With so much suffering today
Why do them any other way?
Taste of Purple by Leland B. Jacobs
Grapes hang purple
In their bunches,
Ready for
September lunches,
Gather them, no
Minutes wasting.
Purple is
Delicious tasting.
