Talk Talk Talk - A Children's Poem

By R. Renée Bembry


Will this kid ever run out of things to talk about?

Talk, talk, talk... This kid never seems to run out of things to say. He has the gift of turning a simple sentence into a paragraph; a paragraph into a chapter, and a chapter into a full storybook adventure. He just talks on and on and on. Others can barely get in a word edgewise when he gets his vocal chords going

The author, R. Renée Bembry, was inspired to write this poem by her son who really did, and still continues to talk infinitely about any subject that captures his attention. He'll talk if he's right. He'll talk if he's wrong. He'll talk through the night. He'll talk through any song.

Oh.. Oh... Maybe he got it from his author mother... Let me be quiet so you can get to the poem... :}

Talk Talk Talk

by R. Renée Bembry

My sonny boy

My sonny boy

Can talk, talk, talk

He talk, talk, talks my ear off

When we walk, walk, walk

At dinner time

When he sits down

He talks more than he eats

At bedtime

He keeps talking as he sleeps between his sheets

His mouth is like

An eight day clock

All that he hears

He has to mock

He'll talk in the bathroom

While he's brushing his teeth

He'll talk in the classroom

While making a Christmas wreath

He'll talk through the morning

He'll talk through the night

He'll talk when he can see you

And when you're out of his sight

He talks in the library

Even through story time

He talks in the store

When the cashier says,

"One more dime"

He talks at the theater

Or at any other show

He talks when I say,

"No talking,

Sonny Boy.

NO, NO, NO!"

I never met a kid

Who could talk so much

About this and that

And so and so

And such and such

Sometimes when he comes around

I cover up my ears

So he won't talk my head right off

And make it disappear!!
