The Zoo

Taking granddaughter to the local zoo
Monkeys her delight to see
Laughing at her antics

Kangaroos hopping
Baby Joey in mom's pouch 
Snug against the world
Others lying on the grass
Lazy lunchtime. "Where's my grub?"

Mighty King of Beasts
Granddaughter stares at lions
Sleeping not roaring

    It was the last stanza that really got to me... sad to see those lions losing their steam being cages and all. OOohh the days of being at the zoo... thanks for the trip down memory lane!
