Sad cute butterfly. Animal poetry for children

Flying from flower to flower

they saw her in spring,

they envied her beauty

and they did not see his blindness.

His big dark eyes

they let see their sadness,

still being a butterfly

of extraordinary beauty.

Sad cute butterfly

among all the most beautiful,

although their eyes do not see

everyone looks at her.

The bald lion. Funny poetry for children

There was a lion in the jungle

who became famous soon,

because he was born without a mane

and without a fool’s hair

And they believed in the jungle

that I would be self-conscious,

but I was always happy

roaring from side to side.

As the lion was bald

everyone called it that

and for being a great example

as king they proclaimed him.
