What’s A Noun?
A Person, Place or Thing.
Author: not sure but I suspect it’s a teacher at my elementary school. I found this poem hanging up in the school hallway!
I wonder if it was a class exercise like a Mad Lib? That would be fun!
Hill is a noun.
Mill is a noun.
Even Uncle Phil is a noun.
Gown is a noun.
Crownis a noun.
In fact, our whole hometown is.
If it’s a desk, duck, or deer.
If it’s a crystal chandelier.
If it’s a train, or plane, or frown.
It’s elementary — it’s a noun.
Nounscan sometimes be quite formal.
Like Brooklyn Bridge or Edward Hopper,
London, Levis, Pekinese—
Proper nouns name all of these.
A jail, a nail, and bale of hay.
The pool or park in which you play.
A quarter, a porter, a pencil, a pen —
Nouns are seen almost every day!
A box, a lip, a chocolate chip.
A cup or glass from which you sip.
A pocket, button, sleeve, or cuff —
A noun can simply be your stuff.
A mink, a fink, a skating rink.
A cake, a rake, your kitchen sink.
The Pope, some soap that’s on a rope.
A downtown mall on a downhill slope.
A hare, a mouse, a broken clock,
New Mexico or an old white sock.
