POEM: Puzzles

Puzzles confuse you and me,

But that's why we do them, you see.

We do puzzles because it's fun,

and it's good for your brain.

"What you don't use, you lose",

And I don't want that!

We do puzzles that are beautiful to see,

Some with flowers, birds and trees.

Some with butterflies and ants, or houses and cats.

Some are skinny and some are fat.

Some with farmers and scarecrows

to protect their seed,

Some with apples and pears and

good things to eat.

We usually work puzzles together and view our work,

But it's rather sad when we must put it back.

I thank the Lord for my "puzzle pals" —

Such good friends, the guys and gals!
