Animal couplets


A little brown toad
jumped along the road.

A brown kangaroo
hopped along too.

A tiger on the prowl
stopped to growl.

Where were they all going to?
Australia or Timbuktu?


Now think of an animal. How does it move? Can you think of a word that rhymes with your movement word? For instance, A little red panda skips; a dolphin swimming flips. So write your own poem about a traveling menagerie. Where are they going and what will they do when they get there? Have fun writing your poem.

  1. Will your animal friends get into mischief like the Bremen Town Musicians? They could! Maybe I'll meet them in a book one day.

    1. Thank you. You might have fun trying this yourself. Pick an animal, add a verb and then see if you can make it rhyme.
      I hope you enjoy poetry with your friends.
