I'm Pronoun

Hello children! How are you?

      I’m Pronoun!  Say hello! 

They use me to replace the nouns

     And to make your sentence flow.


I come with many little names,

     And ‘I’ I call myself,

But you’d say 'it' for other things,

     Like bike, or book or shelf.


If you refer to someone else –

    Then what do you think you say?

Well, her or him - their or them

     Should help you on your way.      


'I' have another name as well –

     The name, of course, is me.

There’s other pronouns you may know

     They’re ‘us’ and ‘he’  and ‘she’.


And lastly there’s another one

     Who, I think you’ll agree,

Takes pride of place above all else -

     For both of us are 'we'.
