The Dot

This is a dot
Little and fine.
***
Stretch it out
Now it’s a line.
***
Bend it a bit.
What will it be?
***
Make two more dots.
Put them in place.
***
Add two more lines
And you have a face.
***
Do it again, one, two, three…
And now you have a family!
***
Five straight lines together will give
A neat little house where they all can live.
***
A simple square placed just right
Becomes a window to let in some light.
***
Another circle and line can be…
Joined together to make a tree.
***
Add more trees and houses, up and down…
And in no time at all you have a town!
***

***

The world is made
Of towns like these…
***
Filled with many families.
***
Their faces are different,
Their names are too…
***
But they laugh
And cry
The same as you!
***
The world is bigger
Than you and I
What would it look like
From high in the sky?
***
A dot!
