Ode to the Silent K

Ode to the Silent K

Knife, knave, knickerbocker,
Knell, knee, knock
Knick-knack, knucklebuster,
Knead, knob, knot.

Knowing when to use
That silent k or not
Capturing our school time cues-
 How we are taught.

Know, no, knight, night,
Knit, nit, those are right.
Knot, naught, knout, not,
Knowledge gives us might.

This delicate eleventh letter
Is still a mystery to some-
How it represents, unfettered
The element potassium!

These blogs are so interesting, so I hope you click the link and join in♫
