The Nine Parts of Speech Poem
Three little words you often see
are articles-a, an, and the.
A noun‘s the name of anything
as school, garden, hoop, or swing.
An adjective tells the kind of noun,
as in great, small, pretty, white, or brown.
Instead of nouns the pronouns stand,
Jack’s head, his face, your arm, my hand.
Verbs tell of something to be done,
to read, sing, jump, or run.
How things are done the adverbs tell,
as slowly, quickly, ill, or well.
Conjunctions join words together,
as men and women, wind or weather.
The prepositions stands before a noun,
as at, or through the door.
The interjection shows surprise,
as ah! How pretty-Oh how wise!
The whole are called nine parts of speech,
Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
