Oh Say, Can You See?

Oh say, can you see?

First grade
The school nurse said ‘eye doctor.’
Peering through her own wire frames Mother said
‘She’s too pretty to wear glasses.’
Second grade
Crash! I bump into my sister’s bike.
‘Looks like she needs gl. . . .’
To Daddy,Mother said
‘She’s too pretty to wear glasses.’
Third grade
Empty Easter basket at the hunt.
‘I didn’t see any eggs.’
To the hostess, Mother said
‘She’s too pretty to wear glasses.’
Fourth grade
No homework, again.
‘It was on the board.’
To the teacher, Mother said
‘She’s too pretty to wear glasses.’….
Last night
I’m off to the party
Not missing a thing.
To me, I say
‘I’m gorgeous in my new yellow glasses.’
