“Peas” in My Pumpkin


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”!
