“Peas” in My Pumpkin

Print Share
    While learning my letters
    From A to Z,
    I saw a lot more
    Than I usually see!
    There are “peas” in my pumpkin,
    A “bee” in my boat—
    And how will I clean up
    A “sea” in my coat?
    There’s an “eye” in the igloo,
    Looking around,
    And a “jay” in the jam
    That has spilled on the ground.
    There’re two “tees” in my teeth,
    So it’s difficult chewing,
    And as for my quilt,
    What’s a “cue” in there doing?
    Now, if you’re a twin,
    This might really be new:
    Look hard at the word,
    And you’ll find “double you”!
