FOCUS POEMS

POEM 1

Once I Saw a Little Bird

Once I saw a little bird

Come hop, hop, hop;

So I cried, “Little bird,

Will you stop, stop, stop?”

And was going to the window

To say, “How do you do?”

But he shook his little tail,

And far away he flew.

 

POEM 2

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

When the blazing sun is gon

When he nothing shines upon

Then you show your little light

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night

 

Then the traveler in the da

Thanks you for your tiny spark

How could he see where to go

If you did not twinkle so

In the dark blue sky you kee

Often through my curtains pee

For you never shut your eye

Till the sun is in the sky

 

As your bright and tiny spa

Lights the traveler in the dark

Though I know not what you are

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
