Eyes Poem: sense of sight

I need my eyes,
So I can see,
I don’t have 5,
5 eyes
Or 1,
eye
Or 3...
3 eyes
Just 2 eyes,
On my face,
groucho glasses
It seems to be,
A common place,
For eyes to sit,
On animals,
From frogs, to fish,
From bears, to gulls...
sea gull
2 eyes,
1 face,
That’s a match,
But really here's,
A little catch...
Spiders see,
With 8 bug-eyes,
And here's another,
Eye surprise,
Scallops have,
Most of all,
scallop eyes
More than 50,
Must see all!
I’ll stick with 2,
They let me see,
My 2 eyes,
Are good for me…

Eyes:
Eyes are the organ of sight in most animals. They detect light and convert it into signals the brain can process.
There are many different types of eyes that work in different ways. Raptors (birds of prey) have eyesight that is up to eight times as strong as the eyesight of a human. They may see a rabbit that is a mile away.
