Dearest creature in creation
Study English pronunciation
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse
I will keep you, Suzy, busy
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain
(Mind the latter, how it´s written)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plague and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
Cloven, oven, how and low
Script, receipt, show, poem and toe.
I have got this poem from www.patriciadiaz.se
