Class 3 Nose

Image via Wikipedia

Way at night when you are asleep

And you are way done counting jumping sheep

Your nose jumps down into your jeep

It drives around, collecting smells

from lights, posts, signs, and bells,

and from rocks and stones and limestone shells

It may get off at Target or the Gap

to lure those smells into its trap

The smells travel through the holes,

like earthworms, like underground moles

to fill the tank up is one of its goals

And when the morning sun rises

the nose goes back with big suprises

It goes back to you in your bunk–

Oh, no!

It brought the smell of a skunk!

by Santiago, 4th grade
