The shapes all decided one beautiful day
that they’d have a picnic down by the bay.
They would meet at noon and
bring something to munch.
They’d relax and have fun
with a nice picnic lunch.
Square brought sandwiches on toasted rye.
Triangle came with slices of pie.
Rectangle came with juice boxes to share.
Oval brought watermelon—plenty to spare.
But where was Circle? He was not to be found.
“Maybe he’s looking for something that’s round!”
Then all of a sudden,
dark clouds rolled,
rain came down,
and the air felt cold.
“Our picnic is ruined!”
the shapes all cried.
“Don’t worry,” said Circle,
who had finally arrived.
The soggy shapes said, “This picnic’s NOT fun!”
“But look,” said Circle. “I brought the sun!”
