Burro Benny

Brown Burro Benny,
Will you give me a ride?
I can brush burrs
out of your hide.

I'll plait your tail.
I'll trim your mane.
Let's ride in the sun.
Let's ride in the rain. 

     I wanted to write some poems that use other desert animals and Benny appeared for me to ride.  I hope you enjoy today's poem.  If you were to take a burro ride, where would you go?  Can you write a poem about it?

  1. Thanks Joy. I loved the humor of burrs and plaits. I used to think I'd like to ride a burro to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I'm not sure I could handle looking over the edge. Have you ever ridden a burro?
