Poem for Baby

This one is for the very young set.


Wiggle me. Tickle me.

Wrinkle my nose.

Hear me giggle

when you count my toes--

1 2 3 4 5

5 4 3 2 1.

Have you ever written a poem with counting in it?  It might be fun to try.

  1. Hi Joy,

    I shared your poem with a friend who has a three-week old baby. Counting in a poem is a great idea for the young set.

    Love your creativity!
