Where Can You Find A New Nose?


Where Can You Find A New Nose?

                                                  by Ralph Fletcher

If you want a new mouth
Check the mouth of a cave.

If you want some new curls
Check the curl of a wave.

If you’re looking for hands
Try the hands of a watch.

But where can you find a new nose, a new nose?
Who knows where to find a new nose?

Do you need a fresh face?
Try the front of a clock.

Would you like a new lip?
Try the top of a cup.

There’s a nice soft shoulder
On the edge of the road.

But where can you find a new nose, a new nose?
Who knows where to find a new nose?

You can find a new tongue
Tucked inside your shoe.

You will find extra teeth
On the next saw you use.

There are plenty of ears
In a tall field of corn.

But where can you find a new nose, a new nose?
Who knows where to find a new nose?

  1. Thanks for your generous gift of thirty poems! This one will be fun to share with kids and talk about word play and multiple meanings!

  2. If you don't mind the negativity, moms have plenty of no-nos. Plus, when I was growing up, my grandmother frequently exclaimed, "God knows!" It took me the longest time to figure out why she kept talking about His nose.

  3. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
