Apples Main Poetry Index Younger Children

MONDAY

There were seven rosy apples

    Sitting on a tree:

One fell off and Blackbird said:

    “This one is meant for me”.

 

TUESDAY

There were six rosy apples

    Sitting on a tree:

A magpie came and stabbed at it:

    “This one is meant for me.”

 

WEDNESDAY

There were five rosy apples

    Sitting on a tree:

A little girl came to the tree:

    “This one is meant for me.”

 

THURSDAY

There were four rosy apples

    Sitting on a tree:

A little boy came to the tree:

    “This one is meant for me.”

 

FRIDAY

There were three rosy apples

    Sitting on a tree:

The apples said:  “Well, who wants us?”

    And a woman picked all three.
