An alphabet of uncommon (but fun to say) words

I'm tired of "A is for Apple" and similar things. So here's a better, less common alphabet that I'll be reciting to my kids.

A is for "Aglet," the tip of shoe's lace,
B is for "Bulbous," the nose on your face.
C is for "Clockwork," the gears that go 'round,
D is for "Differ," unlike those you've found.
E is for "Equal," the way we all are,
F is for "Fragment," a piece or a shard.
G is for "Gremlin," breaks planes in the sky,
H is for "Hoodwink," a trick of the eye.
I is for "Irksome," annoying as heck,
J is for "Junction," that helps us connect.
K is for "Kindle," the fire's brithright,
L is for "Levin," electrical light.
M is for "Mulish," stubborn and set,
N is for "Nexus," where all things have met.
O is for "Omen," the portents we seek,
P is for "Pippin," the apple we eat.
Q is for "Queuing," to stand in a line,
R is for "Rondel," was pairing the rhyme.
S is for "Scraggly," a raggedy guy,
T is for "Tittle," the dot on an "i."
U is for "Ullage," got lost on the sea,
V is for "Vatic," like much prophecy.
W is for "Wyvern," a dragon of sort,
X is for "Xiphoid," shaped up like a sword.
Y is for "Yonder," like some far away land,
Z is for "Zarf," protecting your hand!
