The Five-Year-Old Writes Poetry

Best sung in a happy, high-pitched, atonal five-year-old voice to whatever tune you like best today…

By The Five-Year-Old Howell

♫  Zippers have germs
And when they cut you
It might really hurt
Or it might not. ♩ ♫

♫ ♪ If they cut you
It might be infected
And you should wash your hands
And put a bandage on top. ♫ ♩

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
