A Few Pictures Squirreled Away

We had to memorize that squirrel poem in first grade--that and "Who Has Seen The Wind?"

I was never required to memorize any poems in school. However, I do remember that the first poem I did memorize was in our 4th grade reading book, and it was "Halloween" by Harry Behn.

Or it might have been this limerick:

There was an old man from Blackheath,
Who sat on his pair of false teeth.
Said he, with a start,
"Oh my! Bless my heart!
I've bitten myself underneath!"
