Did you know that -
Rhyming is contagious?
Well this is what we’re told.
It quickly spreads through children
But it’s dreadful when you’re old.
It’s passed by reading poetry
Or rhymes passed from your mouth.
It travels quickly through the schools
And runs from north to south.
When I visit children’s schools
And read a little rhyme,
The children catch my rhyming.
It takes just a little time.
I feel guilty as I leave them -
When I think what I have done -
But the teachers seem quite happy
As it’s part of Key Stage One.
