Daughters Poems: 60 / 500

The Song Of Numbers

Rating: 4.8

ONE god created the world
TWO eyes to read the word

THREE daughters for king Lear
FOUR seasons in a year

FIVE fingers in the hand
SIX musicians made a band

SEVEN days in one week
EIGHT boys played hide and seek

NINE planets around the sun
TEN hundred kilos equal a ton

dedicated to the great poet: (HASMUKH AMATHALAL)

Great! The poem reminds me of Kindergarten. Like twinkle Twinkle L'il Star. Creativity was employed and learning exhibited. Omar, you are a wonderful poet.
