Poems by Stan Swanson

Stan Swanson has written dozens and dozens of poems over the years. In high school he even won a Literary Yearbook award for one of his poems. His poetry ranges from good, old-fashioned love poems to poems for kids. Following are a couple of his poems for the younger age group.

MY LITTLE BOAT

I love to float my little boat,

I have this fantasy.

If I could shrink a little bit,

Then I could go to sea.

 Iíd sail across the bath tub wide,

Through typhoon, wind and rain.

And hope that Mom donít pull the plug,

And wash me down the drain.

 

A LITTLE BIT OF MATH

One is few

And ten is plenty.

Double it

And you have twenty.

Take this by half

And tenís still many.

Subtract the same

You donít have any.

 

COUNTING SHEEP

All my friends

They fall asleep,

Counting lambs

And counting sheep.

I think that

Is really boring.

So Iím counting

Lions roaring!

 

SICK OF SCHOOL

Iím feeling sick, Iím feeling achy

Canít you hear me wheeze?

Iím feeling sneezy, sort of queasy,

Mommy help me please!

Iím feeling sick, Iím feeling woozy,

Canít you hear me cough?

Iím feeling funny, nose is runny,

Someone turn it off!

 

JAKE THE SNAKE

Jake the Snake lived in a tree.

He didnít have a home you see.

He tried to buy a house downtown,

Nobody wanted him around.

He tried to rent a city place,

They said, ďoh, noĒ right to his face!

ďGet out of town, get on the bus.

You canít stay here, youíre not like us!

Youíre not like us, you wonít fit in;

Donít try to move in here again!Ē

So Jake the Snake lived in a tree,

He wasnít just like you or me.
