Billy the Beetle Bug Club

Billy the Beetle Bug basked in the sun
After he had finished his long morning run
He sat on the green grass and breathed in the air
And was totally happy without even a care

Then he started to whistle a quick little tune
And before you would know it and really quite soon
Others around him lent their voice to his song
With a chorus of singers you just can’t go wrong

There were birds and crickets and a groundhog as well
That sang in sweet harmony which rose and which fell
And spiders and ants along with a worm
Had hit a sour note and then they all had to squirm

But overall it was lovely to hear
Thought each of the animals especially a deer
They soon were dancing along with the beat
And snapping their fingers, or pincers or feet

Then butterflies rolled in the air with a spin
While  hummingbird wings accompanied the din
A bunny with long ears and a fluffy white tail
Served them all dinner and shared all his kale

So the next time your walking and hear a noise in the trees
Listen for music and get down on your knees
And ever so quietly peer through the shrub
You might just have found Billy’s Beetle Bug Club

Sharing Can Be a Blast

Share

 

Pizza is yummy and oh so good
I’d eat the whole pie if only I could
But sharing is better and nice as can be
A slice for you and a slice for me

If I had some paper and pencils for art
And you had none the best way to start
Is to ask your friend with nothing to use
If they’d like to share you’ve got nothing to lose

Going to the movies is really a blast
But don’t take up two seats as the person that’s last
Coming into the theater may have no where to sit
Offer the seat as the show starts in a bit

Picking wildflowers is a cool thing to do
They brighten your day and lift up your mood
But to give a flower to a friend that is blue
Is a nice way to share and makes you both happy too

But one of my favorites of all things to share
Is a smile and your time which shows that you care
There’s no cost to you but you might soon just see
How the sharing comes back and it was totally free

If I Could See The Air

If I Could See The Air

If I could only see the air that’s all around me now
I’d marvel in it’s swirling mass and wonder truly how
It can silently surround me with out a smell or taste
Moving here and there and everywhere but still can not be traced

Since it is not a solid form how could I really see it
I think I have to add some color but which is a good fit
Maybe green would do the trick I close my eyes and and think
And when I open them back up I kind of have to blink

Wow, everywhere has a soft green haze a misty kind of glow
But looking all around me there is something that I know
The grass and trees have disappeared or maybe blend right in
So maybe green is not quite right I’m thinking with a grin

I try again and think that blue is how I’d change the air
A soft light hue would be real cool and give it such a flair
I concentrate hard and try again and once I open my eyes
At first I think how pretty it is until I get a surprise

I’ve lost the sky and the water too oh that’s not good at all
There not gone but have merged right in to the color of my call
Disappointed I change it back again and think what would be right
I could try a yellow brown, can you imagine such a sight

Then thinking hard I made the air switch it’s tint once more
But I don’t like how strange it looks and I’m missing parts of the floor
Well not the floor exactly but some of the ground and dirt is gone
This will never do I have to say and revert it back with a yawn

So I put the air back as it was and realize maybe I should
Not try to change the way it looks and leave it clear for good
There’s a reason things are like they are so to change it might wrong
But is was fun to try it once and now I think I’ll be moving along

How We See The World

We Each See The World In a Different Way

Life Savers candies are round and small
Unless your an ant and then there 10 feet tall
What to us would seem like a tasty treat
An ant would find it pretty hard to eat

A soaring ancient redwood tree
Would seem like a giant to you and me
But a pink Cyclops from a fantasy tale
Would think it small as a little snail

A breeze that comes on a clear spring night
Might give us the chills with a frosty bite
But a Polar Bear out on an evening stroll
Would think its like summer in the North Pole

 

Happy Airplane

A speeding train seems like its goes fast
But not to a jet that will quickly pass
The Grand Canyon looks like a big deep hole
But from outer space it’s seem like a mole

 

Cute Mouse

A tug boat kind of seems little to me
But to a mackerel it would be big like the sea
A leaf that’s fallen may look withered and dead
But a little field mouse might use it as a bed

Each person sees the world from a different point of view
And how you see it is really up to you
But that’s what’s so cool, were not like the rest
Unique in each way is really just the best

I Want To Be In a Marching Band

I Want To Be In a Marching Band

Marching Band

I want to be in a marching band
With the crowd cheering loudly from the stand
The stadium flags whipping in the wind
And the cheerleaders shouting, WIN, WIN, WIN

Just imagine how I’ll look in a hat with a feather
And a red crisp jacket for all types of weather
I might have a sash or brass buttons on my chest
The sharpest looking uniform but you know the rest

Trombone Man

I don’t know what instrument to play as they all sound so good
There’s tambourines, flutes and horns, and drums made out of wood
But I think the one I like the most has to be the long trombone
I like the way it slides up and down and makes a funny tone

I bet I’d be the best marcher in all of the band you see
For I’ve practiced many hours, so precise I’ll always be
Each step is just as measured as the one that came before
The crowd will surely see that and support me with a roar

Yes, I want to be in a marching band with all my heart I do
To be part of a big event and work closely with a crew
Of other marching band members we’d be the best of friends
Until the summer is over and the season comes to an end

What will I do when that time comes, don’t you know
Rain, shine, sleet or snow, I’ll be marching heel to toe
Practice, practice, practice is my mantra until its time
For the next parade or stadium game I’ll be there at halftime

If I Could Catch a Moonbeam

If I Could Catch a Moonbeam

If I could catch a puff of air and hold it in my hand
I’d take it with me everywhere wouldn’t that be grand
If I could catch a moonbeam bright and keep it in a jar
I’d look at in all night long and it’d look just like a star

If I could find a white tube sock and put it in my drawer
I’d mix it up with my crayons to give it strips and more
If I could catch a happy smile and wrap it like a bow
I’d tie it in my hair so tight it would give it a lovely glow

If I could catch a bubble and bounce it on my knee
It would be so fun to watch it float you’d really have to see
If I could spot a little fish that swims around the pond
I’d have to do it real fast before it hides among the fronds

If I could wear my watch on the other wrist all day
I’d still know when it’s time to work and when it’s time to play
If I could make a paper plane and fly it in the sky
I’d run and throw it super hard to see it soar up high

If I had a microscope and looked at a piece of string
It would look like a big tree trunk without it’s inner ring
If I saw a lovely butterfly that’s purple, red and blue
I’d be so thrilled to see it close would you be happy too.

If I could catch a pretty sound so clear and sweet and strong
I’d twist it and turn it and sing it and hum it until it became a song
If I could balance a water drop on the tip of my nose real still
I think that would be an awesome trick and one that takes real skill

Ayden Discovers Ayden

Ayden Discovers Ayden

Blue Star

An Astronaut climbed aboard his rocket to take a ride
And since his suit was so big it was hard to get inside
All fluffy white with heavy boots and a pack upon his back
He had to go in sideways as it was catching on a rack

Once inside he settled down and looked at his cubbyhole
His wide gloved hands gently touched the flashing flight controls
Checking all the buttons he finally turned a big black dial
And said to the man on the ground, I’m ready, lets count us down Mr. Lyle

Mr. Lyle’s voice came over the intercom with a crackle and snap
Saying, have a smooth lift off, are you buckled in tight my good chap
Then the numbers started to count back from ten until he had reached one
Ignition, away, Mr Lyle did say, be careful and just have fun

The rocket then rumbled and shook hard before it lifted off of the ground
And shot into the air with lightening speed with a big loud roaring sound
Our spaceman was held very tightly as the earth fell sharply away
He held his breath and thought of his dog and how they both loved to play

When the rocket left earths atmosphere and was free of gravity’s tug
The astronaut exhaled a deep breath and tried not to look too smug
He unhooked his straps and pushed off floating right out of his chair
Having a jolly good time bouncing around like he was swimming through mid air

He made his way to the view port on the wall of the cramped rocket ship
And said where should I go, to which star do you know, should this craft take a trip
Then he spotted a blue twinkling nova a great distance so far far away
And thought I like that blue, I’ll come visit you, and maybe I might just stay

You may wonder the name of our spaceman and what became of him on his long quest
Well he got to that star which was oh very far and earned himself a good rest
He decided to call the star Ayden, after himself since he was the one that had found it
Then he laughed at his whit in the naming, cause he really liked how it had sounded

If You Spoke In Only Rhyme

If You Spoke In Only Rhyme

 

Rhyme

 

What if all this day each word you say came out in only rhyme
Even if you tried to stop it would happen every time
At first you’d think it funny and want to do some more
Until it was time to leave the house and your walking out the door

You meet your friend and you say hello and you wait for his reply
He greets you back and asks what’s up so you look at him and sigh
I’m just going to head on down to the corner to play some ball
Do you want to go, how about Joe, should we give him a phone call

Ok, so that was weird but then more comes as your heading down the street
Your looking at a passing car and you shout out oh that’s neat
Then saying how you like the paint on the top a silver white
You want to take a closer look it would be such a great delight

Now your buddy’s is starting to wonder what in the world is going on
But you hurry ahead and cross the street to a lusciously thick green lawn
You try not to comment how the place is great for playing catch
Cause you know what will follow will only rhyme and everything will match

Then you say lets just go to my house and play a video game
I’ve got a couple driving ones but they’re not all the same
As your walking back and almost home you come to a railroad track
On other side is a cool pink sign saying Welcome to The Rhyming Shack

Well that’s the oddest thing of all today, that’s all you need to see
A place about rhyme, and in the meantime, you really want to flee
Then shaking your head, you think out loud, I might as well give in
I’ll let the rhymes flow, I’ve more to go, and you shrug with a big grin

Then out of the blue a loud bell rings and you open up your eyes
You look at the clock and shake your head totally surprised
Its morning time and you’d been dreaming that you spoke in only rhyme
Breathing a sigh of relief it was just a dream back in bed you climb

It Makes Me Smile Like a Crocodile

I like the house that’s purple and green
The brightest one on our street to be seen
It looks like a giant grape on a grape vine
With it I could make jelly and it would taste fine.

I like that hot pink pickup truck it looks brand new
Just like the bubble gum I like to chomp and chew
If I had a piece that big imagine what could be
I’d blow a mightly bubble and it could float me out to sea

I like the goofy Walrus I saw down at the dock
It barked a funny song before it got up for a walk
If I could jump upon it’s back and it’d take me for a ride
What a thrill to drip and spin and whirl and twirl and glide

 

Colored Fire Hoses

I like the big red fire truck with all it’s shiney chrome
The color looks like apple peels or the stop light by my home
It has strong long hoses that shoot out water with a blast
Cause the pressure from the hydrant makes it come out super fast

I like to see cool things around and think of what their for
And then just imagine if they could do a little more
Its a fun game to play when you think of them its true
It makes me smile like a crocodile and it’d make you smile big too

I Help my Family and They Help Me

I help my family and they help me
It makes them happy as they can be
A gift of my time is all it takes
And it’s fun cause we get to take lots of breaks

I help my mom clean the house
I’m really quiet like a mouse
Bubbles in the tub tickle on my nose
I  watch where I step or it squishes on my toes

I help my dad fix his car
Cause if he doesn’t it won’t go far
I hand him a wrench and a gasket too
Before you know it, it’s just like new

I help my auntie make a dress
With bits of cloth we make no mess
We take our time and sew it tight
It turns out pretty and just so right

I help my sister with her homework
If she thinks real hard she starts to smirk
But when the answer finally comes
She snaps her fingers and loudly hums

I help my brother train for his game
One day he will be in the hall of fame
He runs the bases fast like a Cheetah
And slides into home its pretty neat, huh

I help my grandparents when they ask me to
It makes me happy wouldn’t it you
And they all help me when there’s something I need
So help your family and do a good deed
