When You Can Read
by Bobbi Katz


When you can read, then you can go
from Kalamazoo* to Idaho**-
Or read directions that explain
just how to build a model plane-
Or bake a cake or cook a stew-
The words will tell you what to do!
When you can read, then you can play
a brand new game the proper way-
Or get a letter from a friend
and read it...to the very end.
