My Favourite Word

My Favourite Word
Lucia and James L. Hymes, Jr.

There is one word—
My favourite—
The very, very best.
It isn’t No or Maybe,
It’s Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, YES !
“Yes, yes, you may,” and
“Yes, of course,” and
“Yes, please help yourself.”
And when I want a piece of cake,
“Why, yes. It’s on the shelf.”
Some candy? “Yes.”
A cookie? “Yes.”
A movie? “Yes, we’ll go.”
I love it when they say my word:
Yes, Yes, YES ! (Not No.)

Words of the Week
