A poem about the Amazon for my Doodlebug.

Here in the forest

the trees so high,

Ever reaching upwards

they make their way towards the sky,

A snake slithers slowly

unfurls on a branch,

The toucan spies an insect

swoops down perfect chance,

Howler monkey’s

loudly howl,

I’m in their territory

and they’re on the prowl,

An anaconda aims

a hiss at a jaguar,

And I’ve totally lost track of time

and wandered from the path too far,

I turn to go

as macaws take flight,

The sun’s getting lower

it will soon be night,

The sky opens up

rain starts to fall,

But under the canopy of leaves

I barely feel it at all…x.

Doodlebug and her sister came up to me earlier, her sister said if I give you a word, Can you tell me a poem from it? The word was Amazon. Doodlebug claimed the poem. I dont think its too bad…
