Animal Poems

Artwork + Poetry by Jane Muschenetz



Tiger eyes watch me

Be still, they say, 

You have no need for fear, 

You and I are not prey

How to soar is a secret 

Priceless, yet free

And both of us know it

The eagle and me

The horse is a dancer, 

Grace, strength and speed

Are there inside her

Whenever she needs

Palm Frond Zoo 

I went out walking one fine day

Around the neighborhood

Out where palm trees gently sway,

I found a piece of wood 

It used to be a palm frond 

That grew high in the tree

But now, it was here

On the ground, with me

I moved the palm frond over

But didn't slow my pace

To my surprise, it looked at me

With a little creature’s face!

It had big, black, almond eyes

An inky, puffy nose,

Grey, fluffy ears and a smile

Who was it, do you suppose?

A Koala was who I found

(But that was not the end)

Next time I went out walking,

I discovered more new friends

Now a lion, horse, and owl

A giraffe, ostrich and fox

And a proud tiger prowl

In my home and never stop

Heed these words of wisdom,

That I freely share with you:

Be careful when you go walking - 

You might bring home a zoo
