Best Poem of Adeline Foster


There are different kinds of words
With names the same as you.
Nouns are any thing you name:
A cat, a dog, a shoe,

A feeling, or a zoo.
Frequently a signal
Will tell you that a noun
Is coming down the road of speech
Before you hear the sound.
Eight of these are common;
You hear them every day.
They tell you that a speeding noun
Is coming fast your way.
A house, an owl,

Our house, their owl,
Your house, its home.

We hold in dire respect.

Disdains the call,
A prison wall
Will never him attract.

Yet he betrays
His freedom's ways
For one kind word and pat.
