Letter S Poem

Just about every letter of the alphabet has a song or poem to go along with it. Sing the song or read the poem to your child, teach them how to sing it and you may be able to make up a song or impromptu dance. Think of other songs or poems that you can use to teach the alphabet!


Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Let me taste your ware.”

Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
“Show me first your penny,”
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Indeed, I have not any.”

Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale;
All the water he could find
Was in his mother’s pail!

Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.

He went to catch a dicky bird,
And thought he could not fail,
Because he had a little salt,
To put upon its tail.

He went for water with a sieve,
But soon it ran all through;
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu.

S is for Sheep

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep


Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, marry, have I,
Three bags full;

One for my master,
One for my dame,
But none for the little boy
Who cries in the lane.

Nothing but Ba-a!

Little Fanny and Lucy,
One sunshiny day,
Went to walk in the meadow
And have some play.

They said to a sheep,
“Pray how’s your mamma?”
But the lazy sheep answered
Them nothing but “ba-a!”

S is for Song


Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song;
‘Tis about a little bird;

He sat upon a tree,
And he sang to me,
And I never spoke a word.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song;
‘Tis about a little mouse;
He looked very cunning,
As I saw him running
About my father’s house.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song
About my little Kitty;
She’s speckled all over,
And I know you’ll love her,
For she is very pretty.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I have sung my song;
Now give me a little kiss;
I’ll sing you another,
Some time or other,
That is prettier than this.
