Kinds of Children's Literature

  1. 1. Kinds of Children Literature Tan, Denise Margarette P. & Mamato, Jenny Y. Literature is a faithful reproduction of life. (Bantados, W.) Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to Hey!

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right; I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. Elegy The curfew tolls the knell of parting day, The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea, The plowman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me. Now fades the glimm'ring landscape on the sight, And all the air a solemn stillness holds, Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight, And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds; Psalms The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

Narrative Poetry  Epic Tiddalick - The Frog Who Caused a Flood In the time of dreaming Before the earth was old Myths were in the making Legends yet untold Here began a story Of one huge enormous frog Solemn in his glory He drank from every bog Tiddalick the great one Had to quench his mighty thirst He drank from all the waterholes So much he nearly burst He drained the lake and river The stream and billabong Soon there was no water left It was very wrong Dramatic Poetry Annabel Lee The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, Went envying her and me— Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. But our love it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we— Of many far wiser than we— And neither the angels in Heaven above Nor the demons down under the sea Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; Haiku Bayang magiliw Perlas ng Silanganan, Alab ng puso, Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.
