Do your ears hang low,
Do they wobble to and fro?

If they do, you may be a folk poet! From autograph rhymes to street rhymes, from riddles to nonsense rhymes, folk poetry celebrates the vitality and originality of everyday language.

Birdie, birdie, in the Sky,
Why'd you do that in my eye?

Compiled by renowned folklorist Alvin Schwartz and illustrated with antic humor by Sue Truesdell, here is a treasure trove of more than 250 folk poems to share with friends and family. It may even inspire you to create your own!

Understand, rubberband?

you are the one that I am after.
