A Failed Attempt

There's one thing that I have not done, I've
never wrote a poem, but it sounds like fun.
So I'll get out my paper and my ballpoint pen,
then I'll pull up a chair and let the fun begin.
Should I write about a ship sailing out to sea,
or should I write about a lion roaming wild and free?
I could write about a mountain that no one can climb,
but how in the world can I make things rhyme?
Does leaf sound anything at all like tree?
