An Aye Aye Dreams of being a Woodpecker


I'm a type of lemur,
And quite a dreamer.
I know it's absurd,
But I wish to be a bird,
The first Aye Aye,
To fly in the sky.
I'd love to glide,
And travel far and wide.
I could sleep in the dark,
Be up with the lark,
Feel the warmth of the sun,
Oh I'd have such fun!
I'd have a patch of red,
On the back of my head,
And a long pointed bill,
Shaped like a power drill.
I'd still tap on a tree,
To find something wormy.
You see,
We catch our food the same way,
Both of us like beetles as prey.
Our skills are the same,
The only thing I prefer, is my name.

    Great concept - one animal dreaming of being another - which is what humans spend their time doing! With your animal poems you are following in Kipling's footsteps but carving your own way with your message for our times. (Report) Reply
