Below is the poem of the day entitled TONY THE PONY which was written by poet
TONY THE PONY
Last weekend our friends invited us
To their farm,
And we were introduced, to their
New pony, who had delectable charm.
His name was Tony,
Such a handsome pony,
I noticed him from afar,
And on his forehead, he had a star!
He had already spotted me,
From way beyond the Cedar tree,
And stole my heart,
Right from the start!
He seemed so tame,
Wanting to play a game!
I was advised not to touch
Lest he bite,
And give me a fright,
But I was sure that this would
Be furthest from his mind,
For he looked adorable,
And so awesomely kind!
He slowly nuzzled
Into my hand,
As his hooves kicked up a
Spray of sand.
He was such an incredibly
Was sure I would dream of
I was further advised not
To give him any food,
But could see he was eyeing my
Apple and in the mood
For a tasty munch,
I gave it to him, and he happily
Finished it was a loud crunch!
Sunday arrived and it was
Time to leave,
Went to say goodbye and he
Gently tugged my cardigan sleeve!
We looked fondly at
As though we had always know
Well Tony I said whilst
Stroking his nose,
He stood beside me, ever
I hear that you are soon
To be a dad,
You must feel so proud,
I’m sure you and Shady
Your young lady,
Will adore your baby foal,
And he or she will
Steal your heart
As you did mine,
From the start.
