Learning to Count to 10 in Spanish

Uno, Dos

She lived down the street

in a worn white house

Tres, Cuatro

She wanted to be my friend

and let me come inside

Cinco, Seis

Her family spoke Spanish all around me

So she tried to teach me to speak

Siete, Ocho

I remember us counting

on our fingers to ten

Nueve, Diez

For a while I felt a part

of her family back then
