Miss T

It's a very odd thing--
As odd as can be--
That whatever Miss T eats
Turns into Miss T!

Porridge and apples,
Mince, muffins and mutton,
Jam, junket, jumbles--
Not a rap, not a button
It matters. The moment
They're out of her plate,.

Though shared by Miss Butcher
And sour Mr. Bate;
Tiny and cheerful,
And neat as can be,
Whatever Miss T eats
Turns into Miss T!

Information About Miss T

Miss T is a poem by Walter de la Mare, He was an English poet who was very famous for writing poetry for children. He was also very popular for his works of horror and the supernatural.

Miss T was included in a book of de la Mare's poetry called "Peacock Pie: A Book of Rhymes" that was published in 1913.

This song can be used to teach children about nonsense and different types of foods. Most of these foods were popular in Europe during the time frame that it was written, so children today will need to know what they are. Teachers and parents can explain to them what they are and why they were popular historically.

This can be a great lesson teaching foods and teachers and parents could even have a cooking class involved in the process of the teaching of the poem.
