Poem 65 – My Invisible Sister

Standard

My Invisible Sister

by Jaymie Gerard

 

Mom and daddy said today,

“Your sister’s coming soon!”

They bought a bunch of pink things

And stuck them in a room

They point to mommy’s belly

They say the baby’s there

I looked and looked my hardest

But I can’t find her anywhere!

Day 18 – “Don’t Wake the Baby”

Standard

“Don’t Wake the Baby” by Jaymie Gerard

 

I banged the drums, a-rat-tat-tat

But Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

I clinked and clanked and clunked and clapped

And Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

 

I ran and skipped, I sang and danced

But Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

I flew, I flipped, I galloped, I pranced

And Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

 

I soared through space with beeping toys

But Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

I made an elephant-ish noise

And Mommy said, “Don’t wake the baby”

 

“Don’t wake the baby,” she says day and night,

At least until nap time’s done!”

But it’s not easy keeping quiet,

When making noise is fun!
