Listen to the Musn'ts
Listen to the DON'TS
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WONT'S
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me-
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be
Theme- do what you want (if its right) because you can do anything, even if someone discourages you saying its impossible
As perfect as could be.
I thought I’d keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first—it wet the bed.
Personification- He says that the Snowball Ran away when it actually melted.
There’s a face that none can see.
A little less smiley,
A little less sure,
But a whole lot more like me.
Theme- It is not specifically to show your "outside" face, but to acknowledge it.
Making sure that it’s nice and straight.
You’ve made sure that it’s not too slick.
You’ve made sure it can stand the weight.
You’ve made sure that the spring is tight.
You’ve made sure that the cloth won’t slip.
You’ve made sure that it bounces right,
And that your toes can get a grip—
And you’ve been up there since half past five
Doin’ everything… but DIVE.
Theme- When on a Diving Board......Jump! In other words don't be scared to do something new.
I’m sure that it would state
That I’ve lost ounces… maybe pounds
Or even tons of weight.
“You’d better eat some pancakes—
You’re skinny as a rail.”
I’m sure that’s what the scale would say…
If I could see the scale.
Personification- "I’m sure that it would stateThat I’ve lost ounces....."
