1, 2… Learn Something New

Spiritual Nursery Rhyme

1, 2…  Learn something new
3, 4…  Ideas grow more
5, 6…  The clock always ticks
7, 8…  Change is a date
9, 10…  Enjoy it when
11, 12…  Inspired to delve
13, 14…  Then you glean
15, 16…  From the unseen
17, 18…  What does life mean?..
19, 20…  Joys are plenty

About This Poem

This nursery rhyme is obviously based on the traditional ‘1, 2, Buckle My Shoe’.

Rather than random actions or objects that rhyme with the numbers, I aimed for things that would encourage thinking and personal growth for children, and the adults teaching it to them! 

I have a link page for more Spiritual Nursery Rhymes and other poems for children.

Original Nursery Rhyme

1, 2..  Buckle my shoe
3, 4…  Knock at the door
5, 6…  Pick up sticks
7, 8…  Lay them straight
13, 14..  Maids a courting
9, 10…  A big fat hen
11, 12…  Dig and delve
15, 16..  Maids in the kitchen
17, 18..  Maids in waiting
19, 20..  My plate’s empty
