THERE IS A MONSTER


There Is A Monster

There is a monster
all in red
with a great
hairy head.
He is hiding. He is hiding
under my bed.

There is a monster
with sharp yellow teeth
and I see him underneath.
He is hiding. He is hiding
under my dresser.

A mean orange monster
with big floppy ears,
his cheeks are damp
with great big tears.
He is hiding. He is hiding
in my closet.

There is a monster
with a green scaly tail.
He quivers and shakes
to no avail.
He is hiding. He is hiding
in the toy chest.

There is a monster
with a purple furry neck.
He doesn't like me
even a speck.
He is hiding. He is hiding
on the shelf.

There is a monster
with blue eyes.
He wants to wear
a good disguise.
He is hiding. He is hiding
in the trash can.

There is a brown monster
who is a strange fellow.
He is hiding. He is hiding
under my pillow.

There is a monster
with shiny black horns
he is shy and bashful
and all forlorn.
He is hiding. He is hiding
behind the hamper that is full.

All these monsters
I can see.
I wonder what
it can be.
Why are they all
such big scaredies?
They are hiding. They are hiding
away from me.

     I love the idea of furry monsters.  My imagination congers all sorts of interesting creatures.  Do you like monsters too?  OK, so let's try writing a poem about a monster today.  What does your monster look like?  What does your monster do?  Does it make your bed, do your homework, wash your hair?  Remember to use your five senses.  What does it smell like?  What does it eat?
  Have fun writing your monster poem.  Please share with me in the comments below.  Have fun.
