Ode to My Nose
by Toby

I love my nose, be it black, brown, or pink.
Without my nose, could I find stinks?
My world is colored by my nose -
Sniffing the ground, one never knows,
What treats and nasties might be around.

I love my nose, it's wet and cold!
It finds me perfumes in which to roll.
I use it to greet old and new friends
And sometimes humans if they bend
over - why does that make them frown?

I love my nose for all of its powers.
Sniffing's a hobby that never sours.
My ears are cute, my whiskers sweet,
My eyes are bright, my fur is neat,
But my nose will never let me down!
