Paula's Favorite Florian Poems

Introduction:  Camping and ghosts are always fun.  Students will surely be able to relate to a fun ghost story or an exciting  camping trip.    
 
"Campfire"
 
The campfire burns.
The marshmallows toast.
And now a story
About a ghost
Who roamed around
Those woods at night,
A hideous horrible
Terrible sight.
Without a sound
And out of view
He sneak behind children.
There's one behind YOU!
 
Extension:  This poem would be perfect for children to practice reading with expression as they read.  They could add facial expressions to add life to the poem.
 
 
"Summer Night"
 
On this splendid summer night
Bullfrogs belch beneath the moonlight.
While ther're burping, chirping crickets
Quickly hop among the thickets.
As mosquitos buzz your ear,
Green cicadas you may hear.
Now's the time when one enjoys
All this splendid summer noise.
