Poetry Friday - The Toucan

No one says poetry to kids as much as Shel Silverstein does, so here's to National Poetry Month and Shel Silverstein!

The Toucan by Shel Silverstein

Tell me who can
Catch a toucan?
Lou can.

Just how few can
Ride the toucan?
Two can.

What kind of goo can
Stick you to the toucan?
Glue can.

Who can write some
More about the toucan?
You can!

Shel Silverstein is a favorite around our house!

This poem is fun, and lends itself to kids extending it with their own additional verses; clever!
