My Shadow by Robert Lewis Stevenson

And what can be the use of him is more then I can see

And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

Rhyme

We have Ice Cream the best in Town
Let us Begin with Chocolate Brown

Now, let us scoop up some bubble gum pink
It’s sweet and yummy, the best some think.

Here is ice cream minty and green,
It is the creamiest I have ever seen.

Yellow ice cream is lemony and tart,
We like its taste from the very start.

Scoops of blueberry would make my day,
Look at all this ice cream, hip, hip hurray.

Red ice cream is a strawberry delight,
All these scoops are a heavenly sight.

Vanilla white is a popular flavor,
It tastes very good to an ice-cream craver.

Purple ice cream really gives me a kick,
Good and yummy till the very last lick.

Ice cream, ice cream, what a cool sensation,
We love ice cream in any combination!

Thanks For visiting! Hope to see you all next week.

Five little fishes,
Swimming in the sea.
Teasing Mr. Shark,
You can`t catch me,
You can`t catch me.

As quiet as can be… Snap!

(Repeat with:) Four little fishes, etc…
