A Poem for Wednesday

dear 5Dear 5

Written & Illustrated by:: Caroline Williams

Dear 5,

You are swell, you’ve never been better,

You’re a toddler in age and E is your letter.

 j

E is for excellence, and that’s what you are,

You make all the other numbers have to raise the bar.

 g

You’re the fingers on my hands and the toes on my feet,

On a score from 1 to 5 you’re a perfect score in skeet!

 g

You’re May in the year and come after 4,

I can get 5 things with you at the town dollar store.

l

When there’s a problem in math class like what’s 3 plus 2,

We don’t bother to guess, we just look right to you.

k

You bring oomph to Maroon and our senses you make up,

You’re the average number of wolves born in a litter of pups.

k

You make up a basketball team, you are above par,

You’re the number of grace and the points on a star.

lol

You’re the number in my family and I bet you a dime,

Every fifth letter of the alphabet probably does rhyme!

hehe

Okay, so maybe not, that statement was fickle,

But I didn’t lose much, a dime is just 2 nickels.

h

You’re a prime number, a pentagon, in Olympics you’re the rings,

You’re the perfect consonant harmony when somebody sings.

l

Oh 5! There is so much more I could say,

But this poem has to be done at 12 today.

p

So I’ll close with just this: you’re a great number indeed,

Without you, we wouldn’t have the numbers that proceed.

h

You are fine!
