Jacqueline Hallenbeck:

“Three Little Pigs in a Blanket”

Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
crashed a pajama party.
One started playing the trumpet.
Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
pulled out a rope and tried to jump it.
Their names were Zeik, Bo and Marty.
Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
crashed a pajama party.

  1. Thanks Cara…. The poem I sent was so surprising to me when I found it… It says more than the words seem to convey.

  2. Cara, This is a great idea. If I start a blogging blog I’ll certainly be interested in doing something like this page.
