Tiger Tales


I see words printed on pages dear

A-B-C, sounding them out reading silently

Pretty pictures touching them now

Raised with glitter, tips of fingers

Tickling, smiling with glee.

Snowflakes falling from the sky

Very, very s. l. o. w.

Turn the Page….

Look!  One is all alone by itself to land

Melting on the very end of a big black nose.

He, largest of all the jungle cats

Wearing a coat of warmth with stripes on back

Yes, a gigantic tiger larger than my house.

Turn the Page

Roaring loud with teeth so white and long and sharp

Until a baby bunny so small and soft and brown

Begins hopping near a moving stream of darkest blue

Afraid at first, the fuzzy brown stops in tiny tracks

Turn the Page

It’s colder now, the sun is setting with dark beginning

Nestled near a woodland tree with leaves upon the ground

Look to find the tiger with coat of stripes and warmth for night

Padded paws with claws to match for every catch

Gently cuddles baby bunny near and dear

Downy soft laying close to beating heart through orange and black and white

Sleepy now both rest weary eyes of big and small.

Turn the Page

The biggest tiger, larger than a house

Yes it’s true!

A baby bunny, smaller than a mouse

Yes it true!

Friends forever, from now until…

Turn the Page

“The End”

    • Much appreciation for reading and commenting plus tremendous gratitude for your compliment. I admire your own delightful blog together with all you do for young children. If ever I accidentily fall into your “Poetry Box,” surely I’ll cover the top, hoping to never escape from my imagination. Wishing you and all of ‘your’ little authors the very best in 2015.
