LET’S LISTEN

Read and listen to these two poems with your partner and find out what are the things that the village child and the city child like.
The Village Child
My home is a house
Near a wood 
I’d live in a street 
If I could! 
I do wish someone 
Lived near.
There’s no one to play with
At all. 
The trees are so high
And so tall:
And I should be lonely
For hours, 
Were it not for the birds 
And the flowers.

The City Child
I live in a city 
In a street; 
It is crowded with traffic 
And feet;
There are buses and motors
And trams. 
I wish there were meadows 
And lambs. 
The houses all wait 
In a row
There is smoke everywhere 
That I go. 
I don’t like the noises 
I hear 
I wish there were woods Very near.
