A is for Aprons, like Moms used to wear.
B is for Barrettes that adorn young girls’ hair.

C is for Coats, many colors and styles.
D is for Diamonds, best friends that brings smiles.

E is for Elbow pads skateboarders use.
F is for Flippers folks might wear on a cruise.

G is for Gowns, to wear out . . . or to bed!
H is for Helmets - Hard Hats for one’s Head.

I is for Indian saris so bright.
J is for Jewelry that dazzles at night.

K is for Kilts used by Scotts, do you know?
L is for Lingerie, a woman’ peep show!

M is for Masks to look scary or funny.
N is for Necklaces from your sweet honey.

O is for Overalls, comfy for big men.
P is for Pajamas, so easy to fit in.

Q is for a Quilted skirts and jackets too.
R is for Rags - what our worn clothes turn into!

S is for Shorts, for a day warm and glad.
T is for Ties that we all give to Dad.

U is for Underwear. I can see France!
V is for Vest. It enhances your pants.

W is for Wig, great when hair has been shorn.
X is for Xmas clothes too rarely worn.

Y is for Yamaka - only for Jews.
Z is for Zippered, the clothes over buttoned ones that I would choose!

Oh, the things we’ve been wearing since Adam and Eve
first started it off by just wearing their leaves!

    andrea - this is wonderful, especially the final couplet - so clever! congrats on the win. by the way, yarmulke is the correct spelling of "yamaka" - good guess, though! (you nailed the pronunciation...)

    This is so cool! I have never seen anything like it, Andrea. Wow! And hey, thanks for the recent comment. Poetry seems to be the only way I am able to express negative emotions such as anger in a positive way, hence why a lot of my poems seem to be revolved around negativity. :P Hope you have a day as wonderful as you are!

    Good writing, Andrea. It must have taken you a while to come up with this gem. I've been away for a spell but I kept up-to-date with reading your writing. My very best to you in the contest. :)

    Great and brilliant idea my dearest friend! I like it so much! Well, I started mine this morning in school when I was working in the science lab. So, i've got the idea there but it's not yet completed. I hope I can complete it tomorrow. This is already an outstanding poem for kids! To my fav. if you don't mind. Thank you so much! Best wishes and good luck always! love and big hugs, Leonora
