A Trip On Safari - Poem by sylvia spencer

I am an Elephant my name is Ernest and I am
really quite a hunk.I am built quite sturdy and
I have an enormous trunk.I have two white tusks
that can root up trees, I can even get down on
bended knees. I have two big ears and four big
feet. I am strictly vegetarian I dont eat meat.
I march in line with all my Brothers we are friends
of the jungle, amongst all others.

Hello I'm Larry the great King Cat, I am the King
because I live here and not on a mat, besides I am
to big to be pampered I was Born Free and my favorite
spot is under a tree. That is where I like to graze with
the rest of the pride Lioness and cubs by my side.
We love to hunt and have a good feed. it's then we get
tired and it's sleep we need.

We are just monkey's flying through the trees, having a laugh
because we all like to tease.We swing on branches, we have to
be quick, and to do this it takes practise it's an old family trick.
They call us monkey's wise, as a matter of fact that is a
surprise; because it's not very often we sound like an owl
but we do have some bad habits and we can be very
foul. We eat plenty of fruit with a staple diet we're a noisy bunch
and we have been known to cause a riot.

You have met my friends now meet me.I've always got my
head in a tree.My neck is so tall that when I look down on the world it
looks so small. I am also a vegetarian I eat lots of leaves but I have to make sure there's not a hive full of bees.I am a curious looking animal I
am really quite strange; better to see me at a distance, not at a short
range. When danger comes, I flee for a short while I dont let my
stature cramp my style. Yes I am the Giraffe the worlds tallest creature
slenderly built with a colourful feature.

I am so fast I'm on a marathon run, but I dont do this just for fun.
I out run my catch with utmost skill; that is when I dive in and go for
the kill. I have a beautiful coat a rare sight to be seen; my stature is
slender and my body is lean. I am the fastest animal there is alive, my
speed and confidence helps me survive. I am called Cheetah, I might stop near by, but I'm gone in a second so don't blink your eye.

Hippopotamus and Rhinoceros at the water hole; Wilderbeest and Hyenas out for a stroll. An African plain full of great colourful sights
from the morning sun rise to endless golden nights. Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance you can see, this is such a wonderful place to be.A trip on Safari would be very nice, but then you start thinking about the price.
I have created this poem so the kids could go free and if the parents
want to go; then that's ok by me.

    Hi there Sylvia, have you ever been to longleat safari park in wiltshire? This sounds like a
    scene from a day out there.It is full of light education for the Children and a warm embrace
    of nature for the adults, I wonder, if you were to send this to Longleat H.Q. whether they might like to use it on one of their brochures as an added insight into the mind behind the animals, It's brilliant and a very well deserved 10 from me, Love duncan
