10 Warm Mittens
Ten warm mittens, hanging on the line,
One blows away and then there are nine.
Nine warm mittens, one without a mate,
A squirrel carries one away and that leaves eight.
Eight warm mittens bathed in sunshine that comes from heaven
One gets buried in the snow and that leaves seven.
Seven warm mittens, cold hands they will fix.
I’ll pick the red one and that leaves six.
Six warm mittens then one takes a dive,
A fox grabs it from the ground and that leaves five.
Five warm mittens, we had ten before!
A fluffy bunny needs one and that leaves four!
Four warm mittens, two for you and two for me
I lost one on the ski slope and that leaves three.
Three warm mittens, looking very new,
One falls into the mud and that leaves two.
Two warm mittens, drying in the sun,
A bird comes down and snatches it and that leaves one.
One warm mitten, what good is one?
A little mouse can have a bed, and that leaves none!
