any other fun children's poetry would be greatly appreciated.

Fireworks by Valerie Worth

First
A far thud
Then the rocket
Climbs the air,
A dull red flare,
To hang, a moment
Invisible, before
Its shut black shell cracks
And claps against the ears
Breaks and billows into bloom
Spilling down clear green sparks, gold spears,
Silent sliding silver waterfalls and stars.

Thank you so much... I will file this poem with my poetry unit. I am hoping someone will post the Aquarium poem.

I have the book All the Small poems by Valerie Worth at school. I have a feeling it is in there. I will look for it today.

Thank you so much for your help. I shared the Fireworks poem today with the kids without telling them the name of the poem. I had them use a poets eyes and mind and figure out what Valerie Worth was describing.... low and behold...a few of them nailed it!

Hopefully someone has the Aquarium Poem

Aquarium
by Valerie Worth
Goldfish
Flash
Gold and silver scales;
They flick and slip away
Under green weed-
But round brown snails
Stick
To the glass
And stay.
