A Cow Said Moo

Two poems expressing animal sounds through onomatopoeia

A Cow Says Moo

A cow says moo to get attention
Maybe an alert to accident prevention
A horse whinnies for a similar reason
It doesn't seem to matter what the season

A rooster cackles to welcome the dawn
And show who's boss for pecking corn
The hens cluck like a bunch of ladies
Playing bridge where it's very shady

Across the farmyard, the quacking ducks
Converse with squealing pigs in muck
Bright sun; what a lazy pasture day
Don't all the creatures have a lot to say

Away from the farm at the city zoo
The animals' talk is heard there too

A Cow Said Moo

A cow said moo just the other day
She met a horse, who simply said neigh
The shorn sheep said baa then went away
And a duck quack was heard from across the bay
