needed: a poem or two

Recommended Posts

my kids (ages 8, 10 and 12) are going to entertain at a nursing home on Columbus Day. They are going to play their musical instruments that they know how to play (piano and accordion) and sing a couple songs. I also thought it would be nice if they could recite (together) a poem or two, but I am not sure what poem(s) I should choose. Does anybody have any thoughts that all 3 kids could learn by then. Doesn't have to be Columbus Day related at all. Can be anything. thanks.

Autumn Fires


In the other gardens

and all up the vale,

from the autumn bonfires

see the smoke trail


Pleasant summer over

and all the summer flowers,

the red fire blazes

the gray smoke towers


Sing a song of seasons!

Something bright in all.

Flowers in the summer

Fires in the fall.


Robert Louis Stevenson "A Child's Garden of Verses."
