Section 460 Verse Speaking Solo Prep

The Little Turtle
Vachel Lindsay

There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
He snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn’t catch me.

Section 461 Verse Speaking Solo 5-6 years

Isn’t It Amazing
Max Fatchen

Now isn’t it amazing
That seeds grow into flowers,
That grubs become bright butterflies
And rainbows come from showers,
That busy bees make honey gold
And never spend time lazing,
That eggs turn into singing birds,
Now isn’t that amazing?

Section 462 Verse Speaking Solo 7-8 years

Next Door’s Cat
Valerie Bloom

Next door’s cat is by the pond,
Sitting, waiting for the fish,
Next door’s cat thinks Geraldine
Would make a tasty dish.

He’s had Twinkle and Rose Red,
He ate Alberta too,
And all we found were Junior’s bones
When that horrid cat was through.

Next door’s cat comes round at night,
Strikes when we’re in bed,
In the morning when we wake,
Another fish is dead.

Next door’s cat has seen the new fish,
He thinks that it’s a goner,
What a surprise he’s going to get,
When he finds it’s a piranha.

Section 463 Verse Speaking Solo 9-10 years

Murky Green
Peter Dixon

I’m just a classroom goldfish
and I live in murky green
(it’s the colour of my water
because I’m never cleaned).

I live on scrummy fish flakes
sprinkled from above
by lots of children’s fingers
who often pinch and shove.

I watch them at their lessons
through my goldfish glass
doing awful spellings
and other nasty tasks.

I watch them doing school tests and
I watch them pass and fail
and I see them getting homework
whilst I just chase my tail.

I hear them groan and grumble
do worksheets by the score
push along the felt pens
and other things that bore.

I feel quite sad and sorry
the world should be good fun
full of people’s giggles
full of sand and sun.

My days are soft and splashy
my nights are goldfish dreams
I call my home fantastic
and they call it murky green.

Section 464 Verse Speaking Solo 11-12 years

The Plant that Eats People
Kylie-Maree Weston-Scheuber

My parents just took me to see a show.
The kind that has music and costumes – you know.
The singing and acting were great, that I’ll grant,
But the star of the show was a man-eating plant!

The plant’s name was Audrey. It was big. It was green.
When it opened its mouth, this pot-plant was mean!
Now for most to grow they need sunshine and mud,
But Audrey – it thrived feeding on human blood!

It got bigger and bigger with each body it chewed.
A dentist, a florist – both turned into food.
I gasped and I grimaced; I did not want to see.
I kept on imagining that plant eating me!

Mum and Dad took me home at the end of the play.
They said, “Go outside – it’s a beautiful day.”
I said, “Not on your life. Do you think I’m insane?”
I’ll never set foot in the garden again!”

Section 470 Scripture Reading Solo 9-10 years
Psalm 23: 1-6 A Psalm of David

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Section 471 Scripture Reading Solo 11-12 years
Genesis 7: 6-14 The Flood\

Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.

So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.

Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth.

Two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.

And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.

On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark—

They and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort.

And the Lord shut them in.

Section 510 Verse Speaking Choir Prep

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!
Jack Prelutsky

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!
You’re wonderful stuff,
We love you, spaghetti,
We can’t get enough.
You’re covered with sauce
And you’re sprinkled with cheese,
Spaghetti! spaghetti!
Oh, give us some please.

Section 511 Verse Speaking Choir Grade 1

A Fish I Wish
Karstyn B. Butler

Oh how I wish I was a fish to swim in the deep blue sea.
I would swim up and down and all around in laps of two or three.
There would be no rules to follow, all fun down here.
On land rules are trouble, a real pain in the rear.
Humans are not wanted down here and for them you must always look.
For they only want to see us fish dangling from their hook.
A sea full of wonder, yes that’s the life for me.
Oh how I wish to be a fish and one day soon I’ll be!

Section 512 Verse Speaking Choir Grades 2-3

Kylie-Maree Weston-Scheuber

We’re all sick of snoring.
We’ve had all we can take.
It’s loud and it’s annoying.
It keeps us all awake!

Some snores sound like this (***),
And some (***) like that.
Some snores are thin and reedy (***),
And some are round and fat (***).

Some go up (***), some go down (***).
Some stay in one place (***).
Some hiss like a steam train,
Then disappear without a trace (***).

Then when you think it’s over
And you’re dozing off once more,
Silence … then it starts again
With a loud, almighty roar (***)!

We’re going to start a support group
To help snoring victims unite.
We’ll get together and protest,
For a good night sleep’s our right!

Section 513 Verse Speaking Choir Grades 4-5

Lyn Hurry

When the teacher asks us to sit, what do we do?
      We wriggle!
When we’re sitting, thoughts start to flit and we begin
      to giggle!
We fiddle and we fumble and we make each other laugh,
Until the teacher tells us that she’s really had enough!


It is very hard to be good; we can’t stand still, we wriggle.
We all need handcuffs and hoods; we stand all higgledly- piggle.
We fight and nudge and squirm and blame all but ourselves
Until the teacher keeps us in to clean the desks and shelves.


Please forgive us if we seem a little out of tune;
For after all, we’re children and we’ll grow up much too soon.
And then you will be sorry when we’ve lost our cheeky faces.
We’ll stand up straight and stare ahead with no hair out of places.

What a shame! No more games!
We’ve stopped all our nods and niggling.
There’ll be
No more

Section 514 Verse Speaking Choir Grade 6

Angels and Demons
Kylie-Maree Weston-Scheuber

K: I have a little problem. I wonder have you
Ever been in a position where you don’t know what to do?
And then on either shoulder, someone will appear,
And two little voices start talking in your ear.

D: Go ahead and do it! Would it be so bad?
Nobody is watching. No-one will get mad.
You know you want to do it. Come on, go ahead!
I won’t tell if you won’t. K: The first voice said.

A: Don’t listen to him. K: the other voice chimed in.
A: You know you shouldn’t do it. It would be a sin!
K: That doesn’t sound good. D: Don’t believe a word!
Devil/s (D).

D: Do it, do it, do it! A: Don’t you dare!
K: I don’t know what to do – what a crazy pair!
D: Do it. A: Don’t. D: Do it. A: Don’t. D: Do it. A: Don’t. D: Do!
K: I wish they’d both be quiet. Who should I listen to?

A: If you want to be good, you should do as I say.
D: You’re no fun, goody-two-shoes. Go away!
K: All right, I’m going to do it. Evil side, you win!
I’m going to eat the chocolate now. I’m going to give in.

(to A) Hey, what have you got there? That’s not yours!
You’ve got my chocolate in your grubby little paws!
D: I’ve seen a lot of things, but this is quite a crime.
A: Hey, even us angels can’t be perfect all the time.

*This is a poem for three individuals or three groups: child/ren (K), angel/s (A) and devil/s (D).

Section 650 Verse Speaking Solo Grades 7-8

The Big Great Dane
Marko Gliori

On the way to school one day
We had to go a special way,
And, as we walked down Pascoe Lane
We passed a dog — A BIG GREAT DANE.

His eyes were black! His head was square!
One metre tall with bristled hair!
His ears were pricked! His teeth were white!
My brother then ran off in fright!

All my friends ran after him!
“SCAREDY CATS,” I calmly grinned,

I teased him, and I screwed my nose,
Stuck out my tongue and held that pose,
For then I saw it with my eye —
The gate was open! MY, OH MY!!

I ran so fast, I made no sound
Because my feet were off the ground!
I grabbed my brother, kept my cool,
Then ran like heck towards the school!

That big Great Dane had lost his mind!
We’d be the first to school today!

Section 651 Verse Speaking Solo Grades 9-10

A Special Day
David Bateson

There was one special day I remember,
when the sun set fire to the sky,
and I was at the blue-rimmed beach,
and I ran skidding down the steep green hill
to the silver-glinting shore.

The white-topped waves swung skywards
maybe trying to put out the fire in the sky,
I thrust myself at the ocean,
snatching for action,
not wanting to waste one greedy moment,
not wanting to miss one searching wave.

It was a good day, that special day,
it had a good beginning
and no ending,
there were no clocks out there
where the waves wallowed on the sand;
no radios screamed out the seconds
and the minutes...
and the hours...

Eventually, I suppose, the day ended.
And the night must have swallowed up the fire,
and I must have plodded up the green hill

Days have passed since then,
days without number,
Days and nights; time;
oceans of time.
Yet, that one day,
that special day,
Clings on to me forever,
with the sun setting fire to the sky
and the sand on the shore glinting silver,
and the white-topped waves reaching out for me……

Section 652 Verse Speaking Solo Grades 11-12

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Section 660 Scripture Reading Solo Grade 7-8

Matthew 14: 25-32 Jesus Walks on the Water

Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
But immediately Jesus spoke to the disciples, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.

Section 661 Scripture Reading Solo Grade 9-10

Mark 8: 1-9 Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand

In those days, the multitude being very great and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said to them,

“I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat.

And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from afar.”

Then His disciples answered Him, “How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?”

He asked them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said “Seven.”

So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude.

They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them.

So they ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets of leftover fragments.

Now those who had eaten were about four thousand. And He sent them away.

Section 662 Scripture Reading Solo Grade 11-12

1 Corinthians 13: 1-8 Love

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, it is not puffed up;

Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

Does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.

Section 823 Scripture Reading Solo Open

Isaiah 25: 6-9 Praise the Lord

On this mountain,
the Lord of hosts will prepare for all peoples
a banquet of rich food.
On this mountain He will remove
the mourning veil covering all peoples
and the shroud enwrapping all nations,
He will destroy Death for ever.
The Lord God will wipe away
the tears from every cheek;
He will take away His people’s shame
everywhere on earth,
for the Lord has said so.
That day, it will be said:
See, this is our God in whom we hoped for salvation;
the Lord is the One in Whom we hoped.
We exult and we rejoice
that He has saved us.
