I HAVE NO TIME TO VISIT WITH KING ARTHUR

I have no time to dream a dream,
or think a splendid though,
or visit with King Arthur
In the land of Camelot.

I've underlined one hundred nouns.
And circled thirty verbs,
While wishing that this workbook
Had a story to its words.

I could travel to another time
With Huck Finn on his raft,
Or read a poem by Silverstein
That really makes me laugh.

Instead I fill in compound words,
A neverending chore:
How I long to be with Gulliver
On a strange and distant shore!

Nouns and verbs and compound words
Are sad and dull and stale,
Unless they're fired with the spark
Of a mighty wondrous tale.
