Poetry Practice (Kids) Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Poetry Practice (Kids)

Rating: 5.0


I have a little brown-eyed horse
it bites me from behind,
shows neither mercy nor remorse
I wish my horse were kind.

I have a little blue-eyed goat
he lies and steals from me
last week he stole my paddleboat
and took it out to sea.

I have a little green-eyed frog
he slept inside my bed,
I should have left him in the log
because he now is dead.

I know an ugly-eyed, obese
and sniffling ball of slime,
it's swinging in the evening breeze
a happy unsolved crime.

Wow what a contrast Herbert, the poem started off so sweetly and ended in mire with mud slung left right and at the centre of the in house practice! lol Nice one, Tai, grinning at you, about that problem, nothing is unsolvable! have patience.
