Pet Poems 2019 – Lapes Basic School

I have a cat, her name is Aika.

Her fur is white like snow.

Her eyes are big and blue,

They shine when Aika sees the food!

She likes to jump and climb the trees.

She likes to play with me!

- cat poem & photo by E. M.


I have a dog named Deni.

He is very funny.

He barks at everything he sees 

And he eats all his treats.

He is brown like chocolate

And he jumps like a kangaroo.

And we go outside

And we play all afternoon.

I have a cat.

Aika‘s fur shines in the sun.

She jumps, strokes, plays

and she let me go.
