My first thought for almond, was "almond eyes". And after looking it up here, I found there are six eye shapes. Mine are almond. Huh, who knew? So there you go.
Almond for Poetry Jam today.
Almond Gray and Round Blue
I catch your glance, my gray almond eyes see
Little, round, blue eyes peering up at me.
What will I teach you, blue eyes, today,
When you would much rather run and play?
There are books to explore and learn to read
There are crayons and paints, whichever you need,
Letters and numbers to rearrange
And all manner of things that will be strange;
But you will learn, little round eyed sponge,
As we both take the first day of school plunge.
I caught your glance and my almond eyes see
Little, round, blue eyes smiling up at me.
