    Try these

    This is cite for a boy, and short enough for a little guy:


    THE WORM
    Ralph Bergengren
    When the earth is turned in spring
    The worms are fat as anything.
    And birds come flying all around
    To eat the worms right off the ground.
    They like worms just as much as I
    Like bread and milk and apple pie.
    And once, when I was very young,
    I put a worm right on my tongue.
    I didn't like the taste a bit,
    And so I didn't swallow it.
    But oh, it makes my Mother squirm
    Because she thinks I ate that worm!



    The Naughty Boy
    by John Keats

    There was a naughty boy,
    And a naughty boy was he,
    He ran away to Scotland
    The people for to see-
    There he found
    That the ground
    Was as hard,
    That a yard
    Was as long,
    That a song
    Was as merry,
    That a cherry
    Was as red,
    That lead
    Was as weighty,
    That fourscore
    Was as eighty,
    That a door
    Was as wooden
    As in England-
    So he stood in his shoes
    And he wonder'd,
    He wonder'd,
    He stood in his
    Shoes and he wonder'd.

    Hi...

    below is the poem that was given to us in I std for recitation competition.


    What Does Little Birdie Say?

    What does little birdie say,
    In her nest at peep of day?
    "Let me fly," says little birdie,
    "Mother, let me fly away."

    "Birdie, rest a little longer,
    Till the little wings are stronger."
    So she rests a little longer,
    Then she flies away.

    -Alfred Tennyson

    All the best for your DD
