A poem to help you remember wordy stuff

Seeing as you ask, here’s the poem I was taught in primary school to remember, er, word stuff.

Every name is called a NOUN,Β  field and fountain, street and town

In place of noun the PRONOUN stands, like he and she can clap their hands

Β The ADJECTIVE describes a thing, As magic wand and bridal ring;

The VERB means action, something done – To read, to write, to jump, to run;

How things are done, the ADVERBS tell, As quickly, slowly, badly, well;

The PREPOSITION shows relation, As in the street, or at the station;

CONJUNCTIONS join, in many ways, Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase;

The INTERJECTION cries out, ‘Hark! I need an exclamation mark!
