Shape has four sides, diagonals tease.
Do we see a square here? (Do we see a square here?)
Diagonals cross, at ninety.
Do we see a square here? (Do we see a square here?)

Here’s another quad, with attempts to please.
Do we have a square here? (Do we have a square here?)
There’s diagonals, equal length.
Do we have a square here? (Do we have a square here?)

Quadrilaterals we now find with ease.
Do we know our square yet? (Do we know our square yet?)
Here’s diagonals, bisecting.

Testing for our square here! (Testing for our square here!)

Our regular quad’s come to light.

(Do we have a square here?)
