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.'


Adjectives and nouns match well

     As you can clearly see.

You look for both in all my poems

      For I'm off to have some tea.

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.
