A Handful Of Buttons



               A handful of buttons, the trickles and rustles .... a nice sound
                Sew a button on your hat then you have a very special hat

               A handful of buttons, see how they shine in gold and silver
                     Buttons on a string you have a very special ring

                     A handful of buttons, ten, twenty, thirty, forty .....
       Glue several buttons on your handbag when you have a unique decoration

                A handful of buttons, the trickles and rustles .... a nice sound
       Make a garland of shiny buttons and hang it on your door it will be very nice

                  A handful of buttons, see how they shine in gold and silver
      A small heart box with buttons on it will be a nice present two give to a friend

                    A handfull with buttons, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty ....
                  I have a big box of old buttons yes hundreds of buttons

                  A handful of buttons, red, yellow, green, blue, orange ...
               My buttons are my treasures and can be used for so much

    You have captured well the specialness of a handful of buttons. It is amazing how many people buttons fascinate, and how easy it is to decorate with em. Which, of course, you wrote well.

    Hi Anne Lise - I love your poems! You reminded me that I have a lot of buttons that I should use for something. I did decorate a very small Christmas tree with some, and made a magnet out of another one. You've inspired me to do more now. - Gail
