Can you hear the roaring wind
Or smell your mother’s cake?
Thank God for ears to listen with
The music that we make.
Can you see the fluffy clouds
Which float across the sky?
In autumn do you light bonfires
And see the sparks that fly?
Can you feel your mother’s hug
Or hear your father’s joke?
Without our hearing we’d not hear
The words our teacher spoke.
We’d never taste our lovely food,
Nor know when things were hot -
And would we like a world like this?
Oh no, I think we’d not!!

Follow Up: Write down the names of the five senses. Then under each sense, write down 5 words which relate to something which you have touched, heard, seen, tasted, or smelt today, or even right at this moment. Perhaps you may only wish to discuss these things with others on your table. As for me: I've just heard the kettle boiling, so that means I'll touch the tea bag, the kettle and the milk and will taste a cup of tea. So I'll leave you to finish your task.
