Rhyming Poems
for Younger Children

Noisy Day (A)

The dogs all barked, the cats then mewed
     And the lions loudly roared.
Whilst the pigs grunted, the sheep said ‘Baa’
     But the koala simply snored.

The sparrows chirped, the blackbird sang,
     And tell me who said: ‘moo’?
Then noisy ducks all cried: ‘Quack, quack’
     And the cuckoo called: ‘Cuckoo’.

The children shouted, ran and played 
     And the monkeys climbed and screamed, 
But, during hours of daylight noise, 
      The small mice simply dreamed.  Shhhh
