Just One Thing...

  Looking at himself, In the little spring At the edge of the oasis, He was missing just one thing. He felt so self conscious And so down in the dumps. He was the only Camel Who did not have a hump. His mother always said It was no big deal. But it seemed so odd to him And that's how he would feel. "There must be a way To make myself a hump. After all, what is it really? It's just a big, round bump!" So he went on his way To look for a solution. Something that looked real With easy execution. As he sat and thought, Something caught his eye. A brilliant thought popped up When a Tortoise passed him by. He'd spoken with the Reptile. A deal with him arranged- He'd give free rides to Tortoise Who'd be his hump in the exchange. They walked around so proudly, But with all the stares they got, They went their separate ways. Hey, it was worth a shot. Camel needed a new plan. Then he realized with a shock That every Camel's hump Looked like a big, round rock! Ca

Eye of the Beholder

  We love animals that are so cute, Like a Puppy, Cat or Bunny. But there are cool creatures we ignore Because they look quite funny. Let's take a look at some of them Cause they deserve attention. You'll find them very interesting And way beyond convention. First is the small Star Nosed Mole With a strange shape on her face. But she's fastest of hunters, No one can beat her pace! Her strange pink nose gives her an edge, Though her eyes can barely see. She can find food and eat it up Before you can count to three! She swims with water proof fur, Digging claws?  As oars they double! She can smell underwater too Through the use of bubbles! Next is a creature that you'll love, Though they look quite strange. But once you learn their special skill Your opinion will change! Aye Ayes look shocked, with big eyes, Hair looks electrified. But when in trees, looking for food, They know just what's inside! One finger, long and thin, Taps quickly on the trees. It makes bugs mov

  When Little Z was born, Something wasn't right. His Mama noticed right away He hadn't any stripes. Little Z's odd pattern Were not the normal lines. Instead it looked like flowers And winding, curving vines. It wasn't just his Mama That saw something was off. Some other Zebras stopped and laughed, While others just would scoff. When the herd would tease him, He'd turn the other cheek. His pattern made him special! His markings were unique! Little Z would not feel bad Or anxious 'bout his marks. But at times it would be hard To ignore all the remarks. The herd, they liked consistency- Change they'd not promote. They wanted all to look the same And not to rock the boat. But Little Z loved his fur- It was part of who he was. One Zebra in a million, With his uncommon fuzz. One day, some other Colts Came around to tease. "What's wrong with your fur? Do have some gross disease?" They laughed and mocked so meanly, Each one an awful bully. But Little

You Get What You Give

  The Peacock was a kind, dear sort, Always helping out The other Birds in the woods, Never without a doubt. He was beautiful, but not too proud, His feathers shone in light. He didn't strut and didn't brag And always did what's right. Once the Dove had hurt her wing, So Peacock gave a boost To help Dove back into her nest So she could rest and roost. And when the Raven could not see Because of brief eye strain, Peacock helped him with his food By sharing all his grain. These kind actions are not the norm For all Peacocks, you see. Most were focused on themselves, Other Birds would agree. One day when our Peacock awoke, His tail could not be found. Feathers fell out while he slept With a few still on the ground. The Ants were taking them away! They must have liked the quills. Thinking they were beautiful, They'd decorate their hills. By the time Peacock had realized What was going on, It was too late to save his plumes- Most of them were gone. The other Peacocks came an

Go create your own fun game, Or build something brand new!" Mom encouraged little Kit, "Now you go outside." So little Pup left their house With a heavy sigh. He looked around maybe to find A fun activity. He promised Mom he would use His creativity. He found some twigs and some leaves- "I'll make a cool canoe! I'll be the Captain of this boat And its made up crew!" He worked hard to build the craft, And since he was the boss, He made himself a Captain's hat Out of bark and moss. He launched his ship into water, Was pleased that it did float. He sailed toward land across the lake In his little boat. But right before he did land Sharp rocks on the shore's bank Made a hole in his canoe And it quickly sank. He climbed onto the sandy beach With no trees
