JOSIE'S POEMS

 

Senses Poems for Children

By Josie Whitehead

   Mum,

 

 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.
