Animal Poems

Aunt Mildred gave a tea party

   One lovely summer’s day.

She laid the table daintily

   And put good things on display.


Her silver teapot held the tea

   She made some dainty cakes.

She counted out the sandwiches

    For she never made mistakes.


The serviettes, the silver knives

   And spoons were gently laid.

She had a little help, of course,

   In fact she hired a maid.


At 3 pm the guests arrived  -

   A few friends from the zoo -

One waddled in and quacked “hello”

   But some guests simply flew.


One wore a coat of pure black stripes –

   A handsome fellow, he.

The last arrived with smiling jaws

   Quite ready for his tea.


It’s sad to say the serviettes

   Stayed folded on their plates,

For the last arriving guest that came -

   Well - the other guests he ate.
