Default Children Bedrooms Scrapbook Poems

Do you have a photo of your girl child's bedroom? Here's a poem to go with it in your scrapbook!


Confusing
By Sara Holbrook


Confusing
is the story told
by the bureau
of a ten-year-old.
A baseball glove, a music box,
a china lamb, a couple socks,
Teen magazine and candy wraps,
and old stuffed dogs, a gun with caps,
bracelets, comb, pink nail polish,
a Barbie doll, a dirty dish,
nearby a chair is nearly dressed
with jeans and shorts
and Sunday best.
Above it all, a stickered mirror
reflects the kid who’s growing here.

For a boy's room!


Messy Room.
By Shel Silverstein.


Whosoever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp,
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window,
His sweater's been thrown on the floor,
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV,
And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet,
His vest has been left in the hall,
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed,
And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosoever room this is should be ashamed!
Donald or Robert or Willie or --
Huh? You say it's mine? Oh dear,
I knew it looked familiar!
