Five Candy Corns - Written by Nancy Foss

Five candy corns sitting on a plate,
One disappeared and met its fate.
Four candy corns quiet as can be,
I closed my eyes and then there were three.
Three candy corns are in my sight,
I open my mouth and shut it tight.
Now there are two. What should I do?
One for you and one for me,
No candy corns for us to see.
