two






















two eggs, two toasts
two spoons of sweet.
all things in twos
are good to eat.

two socks, two mitts
two shoes, two feet.
two sides to look
to cross the street.

two hands, two eyes
to look and meet.
two lips, two mouths
with which to greet

two words hello
and lungs to beat
two rays of sun
to aim for heat

two silly monsters
all too neat
collide to make
the mess complete.

Once again a perfectly constructed piece of verse that manages to stay true to form and be wonderful to read as well.
