Purim Poem

Packing for Shushan

A Purim Holiday rhyme for children

By Sylvia Rouss from Fun With Jewish Holiday Rhymes


I’m on my way to Shushan Town

In my trunk I’ll pack my crown.


I won’t be needing my toys.

But I’ll take my grogger to make some noise.


My Purim music I will bring.

So you and I can dance and sing.


I’ll take my Megillah; yes indeed!

So the Purim story we can read.


“What else am I taking?” you may ask.

I can’t forget my Purim mask.


Oops!  I hope there is still some room.

I need to pack my Purim costume.


I might need something for my tummy.

I’ll take hamentaschen; they’re so yummy.


I’ll take my shalach manot basket, too.

Filled with hamentaschen for you and you.
