THE  POND

IN THE FRONT YARD, WE HAVE A POND,
WHERE LOTS OF GOLDFISH GROW.
THE NEIGHBOR KIDS LIKE TO HANG AROUND
AND WATCH THEM SWIM  TO AND FRO.

THERE ARE SOME WATER PLANTS IN THE POND
TO GIVE THE FISH SOME SHADE
THERE'S SNAILS AS WELL AND PLENTY FOOD
THEY REALY HAVE IT MADE

WE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR SEA-GULLS
WE'RE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE LAKE.
I SEE THEM SWOOPING ALL AROUND
LOOKING FOR FISH THEY CAN TAKE.

SO FAR ..WE'RE PRETTY LUCKY
BUT OUR BABY TURTLE'S GONE,
WE PUT SOME FLAT ROCKS THERE
FOR HIM TO REST UPON.

WE ALSO HAD A TOAD THAT LIVED
BENEATH THE WATERFALL
IN THE EVENING  HE'D CROAK HIS LITTLE SONG,
AND NOW HE'S NOT THERE AT ALL.

WE WERE ASKED TO JOIN A POND TOUR,
AND LOTS OF POND LOVERS CAME.
IT ONLY WAS FOR ONE DAY
TWELVE OTHER OWNERS DID THE SAME.

THEY ONLY DO IT ONCE A YEAR
BECAUSE IT IS CITY RUN,
TO PROMOTE PRIDE IN OUR CITY.
IT SURE WAS LOTS OF FUN.
