National Poetry Month – Day 4

Antoinette Leach came in from the beach by James Marshall

Antoinette Leach came in from the beach
with a lobster asleep in her curls.
Said her mother, “My dear,
it’s perfectly clear,
you’re simply not like other girls.”

From Pocketful of Nonsense, pg 22.

This fun poem is actually a limerick – which is a poem to make you laugh, but is short and has a certain pattern.  You can learn about the difference between the different types of poems here.
