Credited to Green Baker from Freedmen's School, around 1865:

The Nine Parts of Speech

Three little words you often see
  are articles ... an, a and the.
A noun is 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 -
  he face, his head, your arm, my hand.
Verbs tell of something being done-
  To read, count, laugh, sing, jump or run.
How things are done the adverbs tell-
  As slowly, quickly, ill or well.
Conjunctions join the word together-
  as men and women, wind or weather.
The prepositions stand before-
  A noun, as in or through the door.
The interjections show surprise-
  As Oh! How pretty! Ah! How wise.
The whole are called the nine parts of speech
  Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
