Rhymes of Childhood

Edgar A. GUEST (1881 - 1959)

Not nursery rhymes, but poems about different scenes of childhood. Poems about Grandpa, Grandma, story time, castor oil, “Wait till your pa comes home!”, and many more. These are sure to evoke nostalgia, lots of smiles, and maybe a couple sighs or tears. - Summary by TriciaG
