I like these poems too

I found this book the other day and am completely enjoying it. It was supposed to be for the kids, but I've been reading it before bed.

If I had a million onions
by Sheree Fitch
illustrated by Yayo

Here are a couple of the poems to whet your appetite, if you like them, go to the library or the bookstore and get the book - it's worth it.

Grampy's Borborygmus
Grampy's borborygmus
Sounds like thunder in the skies.
We all run off for cover,
Plug our noses, close our eyes.

Grampy's borborygmus
Is an earthquake in disguise.
He says:
"Guess I got the gurgulation.
Please excuse me."
Then he sighs.

A Prayer
May no cats get in your sandbox
May your frisbees always spin
May your fridge be filled with oranges
May you love the life you're in.
May your teddy bear be fuzzy
May your rainy days be wet
May your teacher tell you stories
That you never will forget.
May your fingernails get dirty
May your underwear be clean
May your monsters all be friendly
May your grass be mostly green.

May your world spin topsy-turvy
May you love from inside out
May your parents hug you always
May they hardly every shout.
May your enemies eat sugar
May you play the Superdome
May your friends be slightly crazy
May you always have a home.
May your popsicles stay frozen
May your dreams be true and deep
May you close your eyes and snuggle
May you have a good night's sleep.
