Elliot the Eel

Elliot the Eel
wasn't nice-- even a bit.
He shocked all his friends
with his electrical hit.

One morning Elliot awoke
and could not see.
He had lost his

"Please help me,"  
Elliot pled,
as Wally Walrus 
swam past his head.

Wally helped Elliot
out that day.
Now Elliot has
changed his way.

Today Elliot the Eel
is kind and genteel.
To his friends, he's sweet.
He knows how they feel.

     How many animals can you name that start with the letter "E"?  Or can you write a poem about eggs?


  1. get rid of the second stanza... is plead the word you want?... love you.... cloey

  2. Joy,
    Don't get discouraged. Maybe you can tell how Wally helped out and actually have the eel apologize. I loved the first stanza. Don't give up on this one. It contains a great lesson.

  3. Thanks for the help and your patience with me.
