My very young friend who is learning to spell:
'The a is for ape.
And the b is for bear.
The c is for camel.
The h is for hare.
The m is for mouse and the r is for rat.
I know all the twenty-six letters like that...
So now I know everything that anyone knows.
From the beginning to the end.
From the start to the close.
Because z is as far as the alphabet goes..." "You can stop, if you want, with the z.
Because most people stop with the z.
But not me!!!
In the places I go, there are things that I see
That I never could spell if I stopped with the Z.
I'm telling you this 'cause you're one of my friends.
My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!
If you stay home with zebra,
You're stuck in a rut.
But on beyond zebra,
You're anything but!
When you go beyond zebra,
Who knows...?
There's no telling
What wonderful things
You might find yourself spelling!
So you see!
There's no end
To the things you might know,
Depending on how far beyond zebra you go!"
