A Hint to the Wise

by Pringle Barret

I know a little garden path

  That leads you through the trees,

Past flower-beds and hollyhocks

  And by the homes of bees,

Until at last it brings you to

  A little fountain bath

Where tiny birds may wash themselves,

  If you go down that path,

Remember to be careful what

  You say. A little bird

May cause a deal of trouble by

  Repeating what he’s heard.

 

GRADE 3

6. PRINT the following on lined paper:

One thing about the past,

It is likely to last.

Some of it is horrid and some sublime,

And there is more of it all the time.

by Odgen Nash

Shadow Race

by Shel Silverstein

Every time I’ve raced my shadow

When the sun was at my back,

It always ran ahead of me,

Always got the best of me.

But every time I’ve raced my shadow

When my face was toward the sun,

I won.

from Leaves Compared with Flowers

by Robert Frost 

A tree’s leaves may be ever so good,

So may its bark, so may its wood;

But unless you put the right thing to its root It never will show much flower or fruit.

 

Some giant trees have bloom so small

They might as well have none at all.

Late in life I have come on fern.

Now lichens are due to have their turn.

 

I bade men tell me which in brief,

Which is fairer, flower or leaf.

They did not have the wit to say,

Leaves by night and flowers by day.
