Lost and Found

By Billie Daddario

I lost it when I took it off to show my manicure.

I looked for it by the swings

I looked for it by the ball field

I looked by the slide and the monkey bars too

Of course, I looked by the classroom door.

I found the red mitten with my name inside

In the lost and found box next to an old blue shoe

On the shelf in the closet where the coats all hang in straight rows

Between the Wonder Woman lunch box and the playground basketball.

I found it all when I was looking for my red mitten.
