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.
