The missing 'A'

I've looked everywhere.
Even over there.

So where could it be?
It's not under the lemon tree.
Could it possibly be somewhere behind me?

Is it over there on top of the bench?
In the bin? Oh, the stench!

Is it hiding in front of my nose?
Or is it squished in between my toes?
Nobody knows!

Follow the dog, he must know.
Nose to the ground, off he goes.

Round and round the gum tree.
One, two, three.
Where could it be?


Oh, I remember now!
I hid it under the terry towel.

I've found the missing letter 'A'.
I can use it now, to spell words like today,
and happy and hooray.
