The Feely Bag
What’s inside the feely bag?
Please tell us what you feel.
A slimy, slippery frog perhaps,
That makes you squirm and reel.
A ragged, worn-out kitchen sponge,
That’s squelchy, smelly, wet.
Or Cody’s wriggly garden worms,
The biggest he could get.
Do bristles scrape your fingertips,
When lifting something up?
Is it a nailbrush, Stickle Brick,
Some Velcro in a cup?
It may be soft with rubber wings,
And live inside a cave.
A tingly touch might make you scared
To guess you must be brave.
