Japanese Poem for Pronunciation

"Original text is the poem written by Hakushu Kitahara 北原白秋(1885-1942). The title of the poem is 五十音 / go.ju.-(u).o.nn /. Hakushu said that he wanted to give the children this poem, in order to make them naturally learn to pronounce and make them understand the essence of the Japanese sounds of each series of Japanese syllabary-五十音, by singing this poem."
