A chair’s a useful little seat,
A place to sit and dangle feet.
Chairs may have legs—usually four—
Or hang from hooks, not touching floor.
Chairs must have backs. That is the rule.
Remove the back, a chair’s a stool.
Another thing a chair must do
Is seat but one, and seldom two.
But if two chairs are side by side,
Two friends may share—it’s twice as wide.
Sometimes three chairs will make a boat,
And we pretend that we’re afloat.
Four chairs—a giant aeroplane;
And five—a long and winding train.
A cozy tent I build with six,
And anchor a quilt down with bricks.
A chair can also be my slide,
Or a secret place where I hide.
It’s also good for climbing up
To find my favorite bowl and cup.
Then when it’s time for us to eat,
Our table wouldn’t be complete
Without Daddy’s chair,
