Adjective and his friend Noun
Were walking side by side.
“I’m more important than you are”
Exclaimed the Noun with pride.
“A noun’s a name for everything,
And even you are one.”
“But when I’m added to a noun,
That noun becomes more fun!”
“Well, I add colour to the noun -
The size and shape as well!
I add the feel, the sound and then
I sometimes add the smell.”
“Another thing that I must say,”
The Adjective then said:
“You always have to follow me,
Whilst I go on ahead.”
“Let’s try some combinations then.
Oh what a lot of fun!"
“Delicious Pizza” said his friend,
“And lovely warming sun.”
“A rose,” the Noun called out again.
“Ah, red,” replied his friend,
“Sweet’ and ‘fresh’ are other words –
You see how well they blend?”
“Well, ‘boy'," called out the Noun again.
“Oh, ‘naughty’ comes to mind.
But ‘kind’ and ‘friendly’ are good words –
Well, that’s what most folk find.”
Look! Here’s a pile of nouns for you
And some adjectives as well.
You link them up. What goes with what?
And I’ll bid you farewell.

A poem to be recited by a group of children with speaking parts for many. Perhaps a fun way to learn about adjectives and nouns I hope.
