Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater
Had a mouse but couldn't keep her.
He put her in a pumpkin shell
That she just loved, you could tell.
He carved her triangle windows
And a great big rectangle door.
He gave her a square rug
To put upon her floor.
He carved a circle skylight
So she could see the sky.
Then he made her a diamond kite,
That she could fly up high.
She was so very happy
With her pumpkin home,
Peter's little mouse
Never more did roam!
You can make a fun felt board activity using this poem.
