DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Pop-Corn

by Evaleen Stein
 

       Pop! Pop!--Poppetty-pop!
Shake and rattle and rattle and shake
The golden grains as they bounce and break
To fluffy puffiness--Poppetty-pop!
Bursting and banging the popper's top!
       Poppetty-pop!
               Pop! Pop!

The yellow kernels, oh, see them grow
White as cotton or flakes of snow!
           Pop! Pop!
O-ho, how they frolic and fly about
And turn themselves suddenly inside out!
Pop-pop-poppetty! Pop-pop-pop!
The popper's full and we'll have to stop;
Pile the bowl with the tempting treat,
Children, come, it is time to eat!
