Bruce Lansky, “The King of Giggle Poetry,” visited Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in Riverhead, NY on April 20th, 2009. Here are some of the fun poems they wrote together…


 

A poem written by Ms. Adla’s class (4th grade):

 

I Wish My Dog Wouldn’t

 

I wish my dog wouldn’t keep me up at night.

I wish my dog wouldn’t mistake me for a fire hydrant.

I wish my dog wouldn’t bite the mailman because I haven’t gotten a letter in a while.

I wish my dog wouldn’t sniff my butt everyday.

I wish my dog wouldn’t tackle me.

I wish my dog wouldn’t take garbage out of the garbage can.

I wish my dog wouldn’t step on me while I’m sleeping.

I wish my dog wouldn’t be scared of his own shadow.

I wish my dog wouldn’t try to catch his stubby, little tail.

But I know my dog loves me because he snuggles with me at bedtime, and we fall asleep together.
