A poem a day to celebrate poetry month –
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.

“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.

Then turn the page!” – from flyleaf
