I Took my son on a trip to the zoo
There was so much for us to see and do
    One roar from the lion
    My son started crying
The trip was over I was scared to

    "One roar from... has the imagery of the poem, while "started crying suggests maybe the door is open for all the places to discover with your son. Very nice. Thx. Jan

    Awe, sweet delightful Limerick Faleshia. Lions, and other big animals can be quite intimidating on young children. Congratulations in the contest >> James

    very cute, enjoyed reading, I had an experience like that with a Jaguar, that thing screamed and my hair stood straight up, I did not like the way he looked at me.
