Parts of Speech – A Poem

Every name is called a NOUN,

As field and fountainstreet and town;

In place of noun the PRONOUN stands,

As he and she can clap their hands;

The ADJECTIVE describes a thing,

As magic wand and bridal ring;

The VERB means action, something done –

To readto writeto jumpto run;

How things are done, the ADVERBS tell,

As quicklyslowlybadlywell;

The PREPOSITION shows relation,

As in the street, or at the station;

CONJUNCTIONS join in many ways,

Sentences, words or phrase and phrase;

The INJECTION cries out, ‘Hark!

I need an exclamation mark!’

Through poetry, we learn how each

Of these make up THE PARTS OF SPEECH.
