SPRING OPEN-ENDED RHYME STORIES

                                   by Jean Warren
 

THE LITTLE EGG
Once there was a little egg, that sat upon a wall.
Soon he started to wobble, then he started to fall.
He cried out for help, as down, down, he fell.
I grabbed him in my hand, so he didn’t crack his shell.

But later, when he thought his troubles were at an end,
My mother cracked him in a bowl, I watched him drop right in.
This story has a sad end, for the little egg any way.
But as for my family, he brightened up our day!
