Otis the Rhyming Giant
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Otis was a giant. He was taller than a house. He was shorter than a tree. He lived on the side of a mountain. From there he could see a long way.
 
2     Otis liked to walk through the woods. On the other side was a wide meadow. Otis liked to lie on the soft, grassy ground.
 
3     One day Otis was lying on the grass. He was looking up at the clouds. One cloud looked like a bird. Another one looked like a tree. Some did not look like anything at all.
 
4     Then he heard a sound. It sounded like a song. It was a poem. Otis did not like poems!
 
5     "Stop talking!" grumbled Otis. "Poems are boring. Poems are silly!"
 
6     "Who is it that speaks to me?" asked a small voice.
 
7     Otis saw a very small person fly up in the air. She looked in Otis' face.
 
8     "My name is Pansy," said the fairy. "You are a foolish giant."
