Spanish Poems about Body Parts

Esta es mi cabeza

Esta es mi cabeza
como una pelota.
Tengo dos orejas
nariz y una boca.
Con estos dos ojos,
yo puedo mirar
las cosas bonitas
de este lugar.

Los sentidos

Con mis ojos veo,
con mis orejas oigo,
con mi boca hablo,
con mi nariz huelo.
¿Y con mis manitas?
Lo toco ¡todo, todo, todo!

La cara

En mi cara redondita,
tengo ojos y nariz,
y también tengo una boca
para charlar y reir.
Con los ojos veo todo
y con la nariz hago ¡atchiss!
y con la boca yo como
¡Palomitas de maíz!
