Poem to Memorize

I love using poetry as copy work and for memorization. I usually try to find poems that fit with our unit study or whatever we happen to be learning about at the moment. Here is a perfect poem for your bird study!

The Woodpecker

by Elizabeth Madox Roberts 

The woodpecker pecked out a little round  hole

And made him a house in the telephone pole.

One day when I watched he poked out his head,

And he had on a hood and a collar of red.

When the streams of rain pour out of the sky,

And the sparkles of lightning go flashing by,

And the big, big wheels of thunder rolls,

He can snuggle back in the telephone poll.
