Children's Poems

Three Whales

Three blue whales swam through the sea,
Heading nowhere particularly;
Just having fun and a jolly good time
Since being lazy wasn’t a crime.

The huge creatures danced up and down;
Their fins and tails making not a sound
As they splashed in the waves going to and fro.
Could life get any better? Little did they know.

One warm day they swam close to the beach.
Houses and trees were within their reach.
They blew bubbles and water through their spouts
And jumped up high, going under and out.

They chirped to each other, talking away
About how great life was for them each day,
Eating fish and krill galore
They gobbled and they chomped till they could eat no more.
A strange, odd noise came their way one morn;
‘Twas a mother whale and her calf that had just been born.
The three whales circled them and were quite surprised
To see the tiny whale that was a tenth their size.

The baby swam up to them and circled all about
And tried to blow bubbles from his tiny little spout.
The three whales laughed and then showed him what to do.
His mother was quite pleased with these three whales of blue.

From then on they stayed with the mother and Tee Bee,
Being her companion as they all swam through the sea.
Tee Bee grew stronger and they taught him how to blow
Bubbles and a water spout from way down below.

The three blue whales were now a group of five;
Them, the mother and her babe, who learned how to dive.
They all swam about; they all had fun;
Being in a pod is much better than being one.
