A Potato Has Eyes

A poem for kids.

By Sherry Shahan / January 9, 2008



A potato has eyes, but cannot see. A stool has a leg, but not a knee. A river can run, but does not walk. A clock has a face, but does not talk. A comb has teeth, but cannot chew. A nail has a head, but no hairdo. A guitar has a neck, but does not swallow, A chair has an arm, but does not free throw. A napkin likes food, but cannot eat. A pitcher has a beak, but cannot tweet. A shoe has a tongue, but cannot taste. A pin has a head, but not a face. You have two eyes, so you can see. Can you read every one of these?
