A compilation of animal poems for Write a Poem for a Child Contest by MaryJane Garrison
|Froggy is hopping
Right across the water,
He jumps from stone to lilypad
Do you really think he oughta ?
Little Fishy in the pond
Swimming with all his might,
Swam headlong into a pile of weeds
'Cos he forgot to turn right !
Hippo is B I G, Hippo is strong
Don't ever tell her she's in the wrong,
She's graceful in water and in mud she bathes
No-one dares tell her off if she misbehaves.
An Octopus named Oscar
Was swimming in the sea,
He swam too near a jagged rock
And badly scraped his knee...knee...knee !
An ant, he lives with lots of friends
They help each other out,
Some build the house, some collect food
And they never, never S H O U T !
I'm a little bunny rabbit
With a very twitchy nose,
I've got a fluffy tail
And I don't wear any clothes !
Elephant is H U G E
His skin is grey and tough,
His trunk is like an arm
Do you think it's long enough ?
Robin Redbreast in the tree
Loves to sweetly sing,
He also likes Dad's gardening tools
And sits on them in Spring.
I've got a little snail and I've got a little mouse,
The mouse has got a tail and the snail has got a house,
If the mouse had the house and the snail had the tail,
The tail of the mouse wouldn't fit inside the snail.
