A Riddle Poem
At the Back of the North Wind
by George Macdonald
Simplified by Elizabeth Lewis; Illustrated by Maria L. Kirk 
Directions: Underline every finite verb twice, its subject(s) once, and label complements ("PA," "PN," "IO," "DO").
I have only one foot, but thousands of toes;

My one foot stands but never goes.

I have many arms and they are mighty, all;

And hundreds of fingers large and small.

From the ends of my fingers my beauty grows,

I breathe with my hair and I drink with my toes.

In the summer, with song I shake and quiver,

But in winter, I fast and groan and shiver.
