The get together

The get together

The fox he bounced up to the toad
As everything around him glowed
He took her hand so tenderly
And said "hey sing this song with me"

The elephant told the kangaroo
No matter what you say or do
You've got to have this dance with me
And hummed a little melody.

They danced and danced
The whole night through
And had a really great to do
As their time, they filled so merrily
Oh, so wild and fancy free

The chimpanzee said to the clown
As he tapped his toes upon the ground
Come laugh with me, and have some fun
Let's dance and sing then, everyone.

The bear he laughed to see them all
As he drank some juice to keep him cool
Then joined in all the carry on
As they played and danced the whole day long.

    I agree with SAndy here, a very adorable poem. It makes me wonder if someone has done a contest about children poems. I saw another guy showing a children's poem as well!
