Once upon a time I caught a little rhyme I set it on the floor but it ran right out the door I chased it on my bicycle but it melted to an icicle I scooped it up in my hat but it turned into a cat I caught it by the tail but it stretched into a whale I followed it in a boat but it changed into a goat Catch a Little Rhyme By Eve Merriam When I fed it tin and paper it became a tall skyscraper Then it grew into a kite and flew far out of sight ... Stop thief! By Shel Silverstein Policeman, policeman Help me please. Someone went and stole my knees. I’d chase him down but I suspect My feet and legs just won’t connect. Picture Puzzle Piece By Shel Silverstein One picture puzzle piece It might be the veil of a bride Lyin’ on the sidewalk, Or a bottle with some evil genie inside. One picture puzzle piece It might be a small tuft of hair Soakin’ in the rain. On the big bouncy belly It might be a button of blue Of Bobo the Bear. On the coat of the woman It might be a bit of the cloak Who lived in a shoe. Of the Witch o f the West It might be a magical bean, As she melted to smoke. Or a fold in the red It might be a shadowy trace Velvet robe of a queen. It might be the one little bite Of a tear that runs down an angel’s face. Of the apple her stepmother Nothing has more possibilities Gave Snow White. Than one old wet picture puzzle piece.
