PoetryThe RainforestBy Martha McDermottThe birds were singingand the sun was shining,the monkeys were howling loud,The river was flowingand the fish were swimming,As the flamingos were standing proud.A very light drizzle was falling down,as a Jaguar crouched on the ground,A majestic leapord climbed a tree, as if he had a crown,while a green hummingbird full of life lively buzzed around.
