I cannot take credit for this.. I found it in some of my Mom's things. She wrote on it that she got it from listening to the radio show. "Don McNeill's Breakfast Club" It was dated in 1952.

Grammar In Rhyme
A nounís the name of anything,
As school or garden, hoop, or swing.
Adjectives tell the kind of noun,
As great, small, pretty, white or brown.

Instead of nouns the pronouns stand;
Their hands, your face, its paw, his hand.
Verbs tell of something done;
You read, count, sing, laugh, jump or run.

How things are done the adverbs tell;
As slowly, quickly, ill or well.
Conjunctions join the words together;
As men and women, wind or weather.

The Preposition stands before
A noun in or through a door.
The interjection shows surprise;
As ho, how pretty! Ah, how wise.
