My Favorite Poem

My favorite poem is "Magic" by Shel Silverstein:

Sandra's seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins' gold.
Donald heard a mermain sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I've had to make myself.


  1. I love Shel Silverstein! My 5-year-old went through a streak where all he wanted to read was Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic for his bedtime stories for at least four weeks.

  2. That's great! I'm reading them to my two kids now. I read them a lot myself as a child and was struck when I read the Magic poem again after so many years. Of course, it took on quite a bit more meaning for me now.
