I Like Round Things

Print Share
    I like round things:
    Balloons floating from strings;
    Balls to bounce, balls to kick;
    Hoops to roll with a stick;
    The moon; buttons of every size;
    The sun sailing across the skies;
    Dewdrops, like bright jewels in grass;
    And raindrops on the window glass.
    I like to make round things:
    Dandelion crowns, daisy rings;
    Long paper chains and rosettes;
    Somersaults and pirouettes;
    Dots and circles and bubbles that fly
    Higher and higher into the sky;
    Cakes and cookies with faces that smile;
    Lovely fat doughnuts once in a while.
    I like things that go spinning ‘round:
    The wheels of my bike; a pinwheel I found;
    Tops, carousels turning dizzily;
    Skates and Ferris wheels circling busily.
    All round things are as nice as nice can be—
    Things that go, things to make, things to see.
    But the round things I like especially
    Are the hugs of friends and family!
