Have You Ever Seen?
Author Unknown


Have you ever seen a sheet on a river bed?
Or a single hair from a hammerís head?
Has the foot of a mountain any toes?
And is there a pair of garden hose?

Does the needle ever wink its eye?
Why doesnít the wing of a building fly?
Can you tickle the ribs of a parasol?
Or open the trunk of a tree at all?

Are the teeth of a rake ever going to bite?
Have the hands of a clock any left or right?
Can the garden plot be deep and dark?
And what is the sound of the birchís bark?

And an old poem can still be as fresh as a new day?

Ah, the language of English! A perfect poem for the student speakers and writers of other cultures that I tutor.
