Another attempt at a children’s poem from a while back. I’m not sure about the ending, but it’s best I can wrangle into place for now. I may revisit this one later.
The Elephant And The Dormouse
The Elephant and dormouse
are quite different indeed.
One’s big as a house
the other, as small as a seed.
One has ears as big as the moon,
a nose that hangs to the ground,
a tail that swishes to and fro
and it makes an almighty sound.
When stomping through the jungle
or drinking from a lake,
you can always spot an elephant
by its trunk as long as a snake.
But the mouse is very different,
just between you and I,
it’s very hard to spot, you see
and perhaps you’re wondering why…
Its feet are soft and silky,
it barely weighs a pound
and when it scurries to and fro
it doesn’t make a sound.
But as with every animal,
Including you and me,
they’re also very similar,
just have a look, you’ll see…
Of ears, they both have two,
a pair of eyes to see,
a swishy tail, a nose to smell
and I think you’ll quite agree
that though you and I are similar
our differences abound,
but that’s just fine by me because
they make us fun to be around!
