Adding 1 + 9
(a ways to make ten math poem)

9 and 1 have tons of fun,
Running swiftly in the sun,
1 runs fun-filled super-fun runs,
1 running
9 ran runs, but none that 1 runs...
9 running
9 and 1 raced for fun,
At the end they made a sum,
They raced so fast,
They raced so fine,
Made a 10 at finish line!

9 + 1 = 10
