DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK - English Poem



Don’t be afraid of the dark, little one,
The earth must rest when the day is done.
The sun must be harsh, but moonlight – never!
And those stars will be shining forever and ever!

Be friends with the night, there is nothing to fear,
Just let your thoughts travel to friends far and near.
By day, it does seem that our troubles won’t cease,

But at night, late at night, the world is at peace.

ZOO MANNERS- Read and enjoy this poem


Be careful what you say or do when you visit the animals at the Zoo.

Don’t make fun of the Camel’s hump. He’s very proud of his noble bump.

Don’t laugh too much at the Chimpanzee; He thinks he’s as wise as you or me.

And the Penguins strutting around the lake can understand remarks you make.


Treat them as well as they do you, and you’ll always be welcome at the Zoo.

STORM IN THE GAREDEN- An Ant Story



Sunu-sunu, the snail, was visiting his friends, the ants. They climbed all over him. Hee! Hee! Hee! They climbed under him. Hee! Hee! Hee!

Suddenly, a great white light crashed through the clouds. Sunu-sunu quickly pulled in his head, pulled in his tail, and sat very still.

Outside, the sky grew dark and the crows flew pat. Kaa! Kaa! Kaa! Kaa! Kaa!

Oh, but where were the ants? Sunu-sunu stuck out his feelers and looked for them. They were hiding under a flower pot.

“Go home, Sunu-sunu,” the ants cried out.
Hurry, hurry, your mother will worry.”

Sunu-sunu went to his mother where she sat under a stone near the well.

“Amma,” said Sunu-sunu, “there’s a storm in the garden. I heard the wind blow blow blow. Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Ooo!

I saw trees sway sway sway. Shay! Shay! Shay! Shay!

I saw lightning flash flash flash. Zzzak! Zzzak! Zzzak! Zzzak!

I heard thunder roll roll roll. Gadaam! Gadaam! Gadaam! Gadaam!

I heard rain fall fall fall. Sittasitta! Pittapitta! Sittasitta! Pittapitta! I heard water drip drip drip!"

It was the biggest storm Sunu-sunu had even been in.

Ooo! Ooo! Shay! Shay! Zzzak! Zzzak! Gadaam! Gudoom! Sittasitta! Pittapitta! Sittasitta! Pittapitta! Plip! Plip! Plip! Plip!.


And do you know what?
Sunu-sunu didn't get wet! Do you know why?

RAIN- Let's recite this poem

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree;
It rains on the umbrellas here

And on the ships at sea.


                               Robert Louis Stevenson.
