A Back-to-School Rhyme

English
Nouns name things.
Adjectives describe them.
Verbs act up.
Adverbs poke and jive them.

Construct a sturdy sentence
From your toolbox of good grammar,
And if your sentence wobbles,
Smartly smash it with the hammer.

Who is the author of this poem? I'd like to send a link to my fellow English teachers, but I would like to know the author's name in order to give credit where credit is due.
