To help us, I grabbed Shiver Me Timbers! Pirate Poems & Paintings [J 811.54 FLO]. The poems are by Douglas Florian and the pictures are by Robert Neubecker. I wrote about this book a year ago when we first added it to our collection. It's a book definitely worth revisiting, especially for Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Head over to the Poetry Friday Round-Up being hosted today by Tabatha Yeatts--a lovely wench!
We call our ship a man-o'-warrr!
We sail to ports both near and farrr!
From Timbuktu to Madagascarrr!
At night we navigate by starrr!
We're hard as nails with many a scarrr!
We're pirates, scary pirates we arrr!
