I have always thought the Koala marsupial was special and cute!
(a poem for children)
Am I a Koala or a Bear?
Let me see….
I live in the tree tops to be safe
Munching on the leaves of the Eucalyptus tree
I watch the happenings below
A pretty good life I think you agree!
Sleeping and dozing
Most of the day…
Up in the trees that are my home
and rarely do I get restless or roam!
Do not forget two key facts
The wombat is my curious little cousin
And I am a pouched mammal!
So there it is, I am a Koala not a Bear.
(Poem by Kerrie Thomsen)
