Amazing Animals

By Victoria Curry, age 8, West Chester, PA

I once saw a creature
with a snout like a pig,
the torso of a horse
and large claws to dig.

To my surprise
it changed its shape,
and made itself look
like a giant ape.

When it started speaking
to a slithering snake,
I had to ask,
if it’s real or fake.

The ape beat his chest…
What a frightening sound
I woke with a thud…
off the bed to the ground.

I thought I was dreaming
but then went outside
and saw an animal
with its eyes open wide.

I took a closer look
and lucky for me
it was only my puppy,
