Noses
Let’s read and sing
I looked in the mirror
and looked at my nose:
it’s the funniest thing,
the way it grows
stuck right out where all of it shows
with two little holes where the
breathing goes.
I looked in the mirror
and saw in there
the end of my chin
and the start of my hair
and between there
isn’t much space to spare with my nose,
like a handle, sticking there.
If ever you want
to giggle and shout
and can’t think of what
to do it about,
just look in the mirror and then, no doubt,
you’ll see how funny YOUR nose
sticks out!
– Aileen Fisher
New words
