Little Words Mean a Lot

Click on any of the underlined words in the poem below. To the right you will see an explanation of these "little words" and a link to more information:

       Little Words
Is it up or is it on?
Is it a or is it an?
A or the, among, between,
The little words can make a scene.
Or should I say steal the show?
Oh, little words, I want to know.
