A family of rabbits lived under a tree;
(close right hand and hide it under left arm)
A father, a mother, and babies three.
(Hold up thumb, then fingers in succession)
Sometimes the bunnies would sleep all day;
(Make fist)
But when night came, they liked to play.
(Wiggle fingers)
Out of the hole, they'd creep, creep, creep.
(Move fingers in a creeping motion)
While the birds in the trees were all asleep,
(Rest face on hands, place palms together)
Then the bunnies would scamper about and run...
(Wiggle fingers)
Uphill, downhill! Oh, what fun!
(Move fingers vigorously)
But when the mother said, "It's time to rest,"
(Hold up middle finger)
Pop! They would hurry
(Clap hands after "pop")
Right back to their nest!
(Hide hand under arm)


Here is the piggy snout;
(Hold up thumb)
He'd better stop eating, or his tail will pop out!

Here is busy Mother Hen;
(Hold up pointer finger)
She likes to scratch for her chickens ten.

Here is patient, friendly cow;
(Hold up middle finger)
She's eating hay from a big haymow.

Here is Baa-Baa, a wooly sheep;
(Hold up ring finger)
Her wool keeps me warm while I am asleep.

Here is funny, fuzzy cat;
(Hold up little finger)
She likes to chase a mouse or rat.
(Move fingers to imitate a running cat)


Five little chickens by the old barn door,
(Hold up five finger fingers)
One saw a beetle, and then there were four.
(Bend down one finger)
Four little chickens under a tree;
One saw a cricket, and then there were three.
(Bend down another finger)
Three little chickens looked for something new:
One saw a grasshopper; then there were two.
(Bend down another finger)
Two little chickens said, "Oh, what fun!"
One saw a ladybug; then there was one.
(Bend down another finger) One little chicken began to run,
For he saw a katydid, then there were none!
(Bend down last finger)


Five eggs and five eggs,
(Hold up two hands)
That makes ten;
Sitting on top is the Mother Hen.
(Fold one hand over the other)
Crackle, crackle, crackle;
(Clap three times)
What do I see?
Ten fluffy chickens
(Hold up 10 fingers)
As yellow as can be.

(Extend fingers, push each down in succession)

This little calf eats grass.
This little calf eats hay.
This little calf drinks water.
This little calf runs away.
This little calf does nothing
But just lies down all day.
(Rest last finger in palm of hand)


Look, look, look (shade eyes)
Three ducks in a brook. (Hold up three fingers)
One is white, and one is brown.
One is swimming upside down.
(Point to a finger each time)
Look, look, look
Three ducks in a brook. (Hold up three fingers)


Cats eyes black
Cats eyes green
Cats eyes wide open
for the whole wide world to see

Cats eyes open
Cats eyes bright
Cats eyes closed tight
for a little nap time

The old dog lies on the floor
with his head upon his paws.
He's never in a hurry,
he mosey's through the day.

He's a farm dog, he's got lots
of space to roam,
and when he's tired,
he simply comes home.

The old dog lies on the floor,
his eyes so tender and mild.
When he looks at you,
you feel like a child!

Our naughty little billy goat
Nibbled at our vine
Thought he'd try the taste of grapes
Found he liked them fine
Grandma chanced to see him
But she only gave a smile
Thought she'd chase the billy goat
In a little while

3 little ducks went swimming one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK"
but only 2 little ducks came back

2 little ducks went swimming one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK"
but only 1 little ducks came back

1 little ducks went swimming one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK"
but now no little ducks came back

0 little ducks went swimming one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK"
and all 3 liitle ducks came back

Said the first little chicken,
With a strange little squirm,
"I wish I could find
A fat little worm."

Said the next little chicken,
With an odd little shrug:
"I wish I could find
A fat little bug."

Said a third little chicken,
With a small sigh of grief,
"I wish I could find
A green little leaf!"

Said the fourth little chicken,
With a faint little moan,
"I wish I could find
A wee gravel stone."

"Now, see here!" said the mother,
From the green garden patch,
"If you want any breakfast,
Just come here and scratch!"

Where do I start to tell of this tale,
A lovely young filly I saw at the sale,
Standing alone there was no one she knew
And stamped on her rump, was a big number 2.
As I stood and watched for a while
I thought to myself, this filly's got style,
Her eyes were bright her legs were long,
Her neck and back appeared to be strong.
Then I thought how her temper would be
moody!, some fillies are known to be
Is this a fact, or, is this a tale
I hope that's not why she's here at this sale.
My hand, as it rest up on the gate
the filly she did not hesitate
Over to me she sniffed a hello
and home with you I would love to go.
Take me home and love me dear
I'll give you my best with each passing year
as you can see I am starting to bloom
I'll need lots of love some feed and a groom.


Wonderful poem, Nicola!! Thanks for sending it in!

Mr. Farmer's Busy Day

Mr. Farmer comes out before the sun
Walks to the barn, feeds his cattle
He counts so that he can find the lost

Little pigs, one two three
"Oink oink oink", and the pigs play in the mud

Little ducks, four five six
"Quack quack quack", and the ducks swim

Little lambs, seven eight nine
"Baa baa baa", and the lambs find the warmth of the sun

Ah, what a busy day
