A poem a day to celebrate poetry month –

Pterosaurs
TERR-oh-sawrs (winged lizards)

The pterrifying pterosaurs
Flew ptours the ptime of dinosaurs.
With widespread wings and pteeth pto ptear,
They pterrorized the pteeming air.
They were not ptame.
There were ptenacious —
From the Ptriassic
Pto the Cretaceous.

— Douglas Florian

Dinothesaurus : prehistoric poems and paintings by Douglas Florian. –  J 811.54 Flo
“This book is full of dinosaurs,
Both carnivores and herbivores.
You’ll find a big Iguanodon,
As well as clever Tro-o-don.
There’s Spinosaurus and T. rex,
Plus plesiosaurs with giant necks,
And others from an ancient age.
Want to learn more?
Then turn the page!” – from flyleaf
