Meka Had A Toy Camera - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Meka had a toy camera,
presented by her Mummy Manjula
for her birthday;

While she was viewing through it,
She could see a few animals in it;

She showed it to me with enthusiasm,
I saw it with hilarious amusement;

While I see inside for the first time,
I asked her like a quiz whether she can guess;

I am seeing an animal with four letters,
Can you tell me what I see here?

She said, 'Is it a squirrel?
No, squirrel has eight letters,
tell me the animal you see real;

Is it tiger? but it has five letters,
Is it giraffe? but it has seven letters,
Tell me grandpa, what do you see?
I said, 'I can see a bear'!

Now she responded shrewdly,
If you click the camera several time,
You see a different animal every-time,
Squirrel, Tiger, Giraffe and Bear.
