‘Peas’ in My Pumpkin

“‘Peas’ in My Pumpkin,” Friend, Oct. 1991, 15

“Peas” in My Pumpkin

While learning my letters

From A to Z,

I saw a lot more

Than I usually see!

There are “peas” in my pumpkin,

A “bee” in my boat—

And how will I clean up

A “sea” in my coat?

There’s an “eye” in the igloo,

Looking around,

And a “jay” in the jam

That has spilled on the ground.

There’re two “tees” in my teeth,

So it’s difficult chewing,

And as for my quilt,

What’s a “cue” in there doing?

Now, if you’re a twin,

This might really be new:

Look hard at the word,

And you’ll find “double you”!
