At The Zoo

There are lions and roaring tigers,
and enormous camels and things,
There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons,
and a great big bear with wings.

A beautiful children's song narrating behavior of a child during visit to zoo.A great sone worthy of modern poem of the day.
A visit at the Zoo! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
And lions and roaring tigers hate saying, " How do you do? " - But I give buns to the elephant when I go down to the Zoo! Interesting reflections. tony
Nice one. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks.
A very lively poem, but so lively that the poet made so many mini mistakes, which for a person who wants to be called closer, can't get through the braces. No way, grammar and the right words are the most important in a poem, especially one that has already become classical. I can't say anything else, sorry dear family of the poet. Though those irritating mistakes, despite these all I have enjoyed this Zoo
Yes if there are so many species of animals, I'd rather feed elephants with bread get the lions and tigers talking, which does not always work.
I've loved Milne since I was a child...
the heart is full of love for the all animals of world///
Making a choice of a friend. Personal.
Wonderful poem by A.A Milne....replete with rollicking rhythms and rhymes. I particularly like the use of alliteration in, ' biffalo, buffalo, bisons'
buns only to the elephants. A nice poem from the great mind.
