   Funny Poetry

There are so many wonderful poems to choose from it is difficult to know where to make a start! We have therefore devised a Top 20 List of our favourite poems. It was an extremely difficult task and obviously our choice, in the end, was based on personal preferences! We hope that the list will provide our readers with as much pleasure that these famous verses have given to us. A good knowledge of these famous verses will provide all students and children with a good grounding of the subject. Each poet has a different style of writing making expert use of the English language. We have been asked on many occasions which is our favourite poem. Impossible! Writing styles, subject matter and even childhood memories influence choices, so we gave up and endeavoured to, at least, compile a list of our top twenty famous and favourite poems! The first line of the famous verse has been included to jog the memory! Please refer to the Index for the Top 20 list! We can, however give examples of some amusing verses from a selection of the most popular funny poems. We just had to start with " Daddy Fell into the pond!", the famous Funny Poem by Alfred Noyes, purely because its very title makes us laugh!

Famous Funny Poem by Alfred Noyes

Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And then there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Then
Daddy fell into the pond!

And everyone's face grew merry and bright,
And Timothy danced for sheer delight.
"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick!
He's crawling out of the duckweed!" Click!

Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee,
And doubled up, shaking silently,
And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft,
And it sounded as if the old drake laughed.
Oh, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond
When
Daddy Fell into the pond!

STELLA'S BIRTHDAY MARCH 13, 1719
Famous Funny Poem by Jonathan Swift

Stella this day is thirty-four, 
(We shan't dispute a year or more:) 
However, Stella, be not troubled, 
Although thy size and years are doubled, 
Since first I saw thee at sixteen, 
The brightest virgin on the green; 
So little is thy form declin'd; 
Made up so largely in thy mind. 

Oh, would it please the gods to split 
Thy beauty, size, and years, and wit; 
No age could furnish out a pair 
Of nymphs so graceful, wise, and fair; 
With half the lustre of your eyes, 
With half your wit, your years, and size. 
And then, before it grew too late, 
How should I beg of gentle Fate, 
(That either nymph might have her swain,) 
To split my worship too in twain
