Ducks in the Rain
Walking in a long line like a train,
Six ducks went marching in the rain,
Raindrops splashed on every back,
Together the ducks cried, “quack, quack, quack!!”
And the black duck walked way in the back.
Splashing in a puddle cold and deep,
Five ducks hurried home and tried to sleep,
But their coughing kept them wide awake,
Mom came in with cough syrup to take,
The white duck sneaked a piece of cake!!
Eating oatmeal from a mixing bowl,
Four ducks gobbled in a crooked row,
Mom passed napkins big as suitcases,
For them to wipe their hands and faces,
The purple duck tied her pink shoelaces.
Combing their hair and slamming the gate,
Three ducks reached the school bus too late,
They splashed through the rain to the school,
Swimming like they were in a pool.
The red duck reported the rain felt cool!
Waiting for the sun to come around,
Two ducks bounced a blue ball up and down,
They tripped and fell with wet grass bad luck
One brown duck quacked from the mud where he stuck,
Instead of cats and dogs it’s raining ducks!
Stella Rabbit’s Runaway Umbrella
A brown haired, blue eyed rabbit name Stella,
Loved her blue, red, and yellow umbrella,
As soon as raindrops fell from the sky,
Stella would hold her umbrella high.
A sneaky wind with a hip and a hop,
Swooshed underneath the umbrella’s top,
The wind blew swift, the wind whoosed loud,
Blowing the umbrella into the clouds.
Stella followed her umbrella ship
Taking a rooftop sailing trip
Flying over brick chimney tops
Touching the grass in rabbit hops.
She flew over land, she flew over sea,
Until she finally rested in a tree,
But her umbrella sailed on
Covering every store in town.
Grocery shoppers felt quite harried,
Yelling that the carrots were buried.
Stella jumped and Stella hip hopped,
She caught the umbrella and made it stop,
But when she tried to fold it away,
The umbrella sailed another day,
Until Stella riding her friend Pete parrot
Sank it with wild yellow carrot!!
