In January - Poem by Maurice Sendak

In January it's so nice,
While slipping on the sliding ice,
To sip hot chicken soup with rice.
Sipping once, sipping twice,
Sipping chicken soup with rice.

    A children's poem by a writer of children's books. It does have some nice rhyming and makes me hungry for some chicken soup with rice. (Report) Reply
