This month's poem is written by Shel Silver~tein.
He is well-known by youth and adults alike. (What do
you mean, you never heard of him?). Anyway, here's
an interesting poem. Catch the meaning.
THE FARMER AND THE QUEEN by She I Silverstein.
"She's coming", the farmer said to the owl.
"Oh, what shall I, what shall I do?
Shall I bow when she comes?
Shall I twiddle my thumbs?"
The owl asked, "Who?"
"The Queen, the Queen, the royal Queen--
She'll pass the farm today.
Shall I salute?", he asked the horse.
The horse said, "Nay"
"Shall I give her a gift?" he asked the wren
"A lovely memento for her to keep?
An egg or a peach or an ear of corn?"
The wren said "Cheap."
"But should I curtsy or should I cheer?
Oh, here's her carriage now.
What should I do?" he asked the dog.
The dog said, "Bow"
And so he did, and so she passed,
Oh, tra lala lala, From: Where
"She smiled, she did!" he told the sheep The Sidewalk
The sheep said, "BAH" Ends by S.S ..

IT 's "SHORTCAKE TlME~" (again!!!)
On a blue-sky sunny day
In the month of June,
I recall the fragrance
Of strawberry bloom.
Bright red nuggets, juicy-sweet
Hanging from each vine,
Reminded youthful palates
It was strawberry shortcake time.
And off we went with happy hearts
To the pasture's sunny knoll,
To harvest nature's tangy fruit
A delicacy for all. By Juanita Johnson
