I went to visit the zoo today.
It did not rain – I decided to stay.
It was quite, quite cold in spite of the sun
And the birds and animals all had fun
I do like looking at all the birds
And sometimes I may get stuck for words
But I like the ducks as they paddle and splash
With elegance, grace and lots of dash.
Giraffes are big. They’re as big as a house
And they are quiet. As quite as a mouse
And lions are quiet if they do not roar
But if they do , there could be war.
Now the colobus monkey in Black and White
You will see him at day but not at night
And the big gorilla was trying to hide
In long green grass on a far hill side.
Now the little lithe lemurs all out of the breeze
Were grooming each other in twos and threes
And they all ran free in their open spot
I liked the lemurs. I liked ’em a lot.
I had quite a day at the Melbourne Zoo
And I’m sure if you went, then you would too.
There’s a lot more things that I could say
But that must wait for another day.
Now remember that if you hover over any one of the photos you will see each group enlarged.
