  1. 1. The Grey Horse James Reeves A dappled horse stood at the edge of the meadow, He was peaceful and quiet and grey as a shadow. Something he seemed to be saying to me, As he stood in the shade of the chestnut tree. “It’s a wonderful morning,” he seemed to say, “So jump on my back, and let’s be away! It’s over the hedge we’ll leap and fly, And up the hill to the edge of the sky.” “For over the hill there are fields without end; On the galloping downs we can run like the wind.

  3. 3. Suzanna Socked Me Sunday Jack Prelutsky Suzanna socked me Sunday, She socked me Monday too, She also socked me Tuesday, I was turning black and blue. She socked me double Wednesday, And Thursday even more, But when she socked me Friday, She began to get me sore. “Enough’s enough,” I yelled at her, “I hate it when you hit me!” “Well, then I won’t!” Suzanna saidThat Saturday, she bit me.

  7. 7. Today Is Not a Good Day by Rebecca Kai Dotlich Today is not a good day. I woke up sick in bed. My stomach has a stabbing pain that’s spreading to my head. My knees are weak and achy. My eyes are full of flu. I fear I may contaminate; I have a fever too. I cannot see. I cannot breathe. I cannot read or write. My eyes are shut. My nose is blocked. I’m not a pretty sight. I cannot lift a finger or move a tired toe. My throat is hot and scratchy. The answer’s simply NO…. I cannot go to school today; I’m awfully sorry too, this had to happen on the day
