  1. The Owl and the Pussy-Cat by Edward Lear 
The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are.” 
  1. The Wind by Robert Louis Stevenson 
I saw you toss the kites on high
And blow the birds about the sky;
And all around I heard you pass,
Like ladies’ skirts across the grass 
O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind, that sings so loud a song!

  1. How Doth the Little Crocodile by Lewis Carroll 
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fish in
With gently smiling jaws! 
  1. The Caterpillar by Christina Rossetti

  1. Daffodils, by William Wordsworth 
I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o’er vales and hills, 
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host of golden daffodils; 
Beside the lake, beneath the trees, 
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. 

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way, 
They stretched in never-ending line 
Along the margin of a bay; 
Ten thousand saw I at a glance, 
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. 

The waves beside them danced; 
but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: 
A poet could not but be gay, 
In such a jocund company; 
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought 
What wealth the show to me had brought; 

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in a pensive mood, 
They flash upon that inward eye 
Which is the bliss of solitude; 
And then my heart with pleasure fills, 
And dances with the daffodils!
