Senses Poems for Children
By Josie Whitehead
Just a note explaining why
Your chocolate's disappeared.
You'll have your own suspicions
And they'll be as you feared.
I saw them on the table
When I came downstairs last night.
When I couldn't think what I could eat,
Your chocolates came in sight.
I wanted just to look at them -
To examine them for fun.
The smell of chocolate tempted me.
I had to take just one.
The taste was so delicious
That I took another one.
This led me on to several more.
Oh please forgive me Mum.
In fact you should be pleased with me,
For what I did was great.
Because the chocolates all have gone,
You won't pile on the weight.
