I'm a little teapot Short and stout. Here is my handle, Here is my spout. When I get all steamed up Here me shout, Just tip me over And pour me out.
Introduction Here are the lyrics to a nursery rhyme song I learned as a young child. Do you recognize the words (and remember the tune)?
Extension Sometimes it's difficult to talk about song lyrics without actually singing the song or listening to the song, so I would incorporate music into my sharing and discussing of the poem. Also, since young adults often know so many popular songs, invite them to suggest other (more contemporary) songs to consider as possible poetry.
