    1987 my son drew a picture about Grandma giving underwear for Christmas. He wrote It's Christmas Jakck Prelutsky. Did you write a poem like this? I want to frame this priceless pic with your poem.

    I think Jack Prelutsky is a great poet. Our 5th grade class is doing poems for Halloween on Jack Prelutsky. He is so creative in his poetry. Each one of our classmates has a spooky line. He is a great poet.

Best Poem of Jack Prelutsky

Last Night I Dreamed Of Chickens

Last night I dreamed of chickens,
there were chickens everywhere,
they were standing on my stomach,
they were nesting in my hair,
they were pecking at my pillow,
they were hopping on my head,
they were ruffling up their feathers
as they raced about my bed.

They were on the chairs and tables,
they were on the chandeliers,
they were roosting in the corners,
they were clucking in my ears,
there were chickens, chickens, chickens
for as far as I could see...
when I woke today, I noticed
there were eggs on top of me.

The Visitor

it came today to visit
and moved into the house
it was smaller than an elephant
but larger than a mouse

first it slapped my sister
then it kicked my dad
then it pushed my mother
oh! that really made me mad
