Polka Dots: The Story of the Shape of Things

Polka dots are circles, 

Not at all square. 

They don’t have sides, 

Not oval like a pear. 

They come in every color, 

Every shade, and every hue. 

Even black and white, 

Circumference meant for you!

A hexagon has six sides,

An octagon eight. 

A wedge is part circle,

Not all parts are straight.

Dots and spots are round, 

Almost like a wheel,

But a triangle is pointy, 

Three sides for real.

If you have to choose, 

And make the shape of things,

Pick polka dots for fun

Like butterflies in spring!
