Watercolor Flowers
Sensations

What has a sweet perfume
      With petals of red?
In my hot summer garden
     It sits in its bed? -------

Now, smell this aroma -    

     The word rhymes with toffee.

It's eleven o'clock  and it's

      Time for my ------.

Here's an object that's ringing.
     Its name rhymes with stone.
Well, I'm sure that you've guessed -
      It's my mobile -----.

Now what do I see?
     Its name rhymes with still.
It's driven by wind.
     It's a great big wind ----.

What's that I can smell?
      Its name rhymes with roast.
Oh help! What's that burning?
     My poor blackened -----.
