For this week I've chosen a poem by Shel Silverstien. A lot of his poems are very animated and funny.  I think readers of all ages will like his poems for children. I hope you enjoy this one that I've picked out! Also, if you have a poem you'd think people would appreciate here at Reading Soup feel free to tell me!

Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too
By: Shel Silverstein (From the book, "Where the Sidewalk Ends")

Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too
Went for a ride in a flying shoe.
"Hooray!"
"What fun!"
"It's time we flew!"
Said Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too.
                                                                                    
Ickle was captain, and Pickle was crew
And Tickle served coffee and mulligan stew
As higher
And higher 
And higher they flew,
Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too

Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too,
Over the sun and beyond the blue.
"Hold on!"
"Stay in!"
"I hope we do!"
Cried Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too.

Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle too
Never returned to the world they knew,
And nobody
Knows what's
Happened to
Dear Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too.
