Need a Poem
I need a poem for my grandaughter to recite for the Reading Festival at her school. Any ideas? She is in the fourth grade.

Will it be in April?
Here's one with humor and a lot of scope for 'voices' and emotions:

Thank you
I love the poem! I don't know if the final poetry reading will be in March or April, but will find out as I would love for her to use this one. DO you have any others appropriate for her? Thanks so much!

This poem would require the reader to adopt two voices. It lends itself to a lot of voice expression and has humor too. The main prop needed would be a chair-- the reader would sit on this from the start-- but she could also have some mangled papers to show as she reads.

The sky is blue
White swans in the pond
Smell of a batch of apple pie
Beauty isn't it
