Poetry Contest

Give a toddler good advice in poem or nursery rhyme form
Pretend you've been invited to a baby shower, a toddler's birthday party, kindergarten graduation, or you've accepted to become a child's God-parent or mentor...

Now....you want to give that child the gift of your poem, have it framed, and have that child treasure it for ages to come....You want your poem to be meaningful with good sound advice....write that poem for that child and post here for this competition!

They say "It Takes A Village To Raise A Child..."  Help that child understand your wisdom and feed from your knowledge in terms he/she will understand, either now or the near future (providing the child may have to be a little older for reading comprehension).

Guidelines:
1.  Not EXTREMELY lengthy (it's for a toddler/child)
2.  No negative ANGER poems about "how life sucks" or anything of that nature
3.  Keep positive...Nurture the young soul with your wisdom and knowledge.

Ready? Set?  Launch!

Shy Tiger, Hungry Tiger

She was a youth of Bengal breed  
Who once ate apple core with seed  
When came upon deserted camp  
By flickered light of oiled lamp.  

Alone the orphan tiger roamed  
Without a sibling, mum or home  
In search of apple cores to taste  
With stomach growling looked in haste.  
 
She stalked among the swamps & weeds  
But they don't grow on mangrove trees  
And scent of carcass meat of stag  
She'd make a face and start to gag.  
 
Then into forest wandered deep  
The howl of monkeys meant no sleep  
She was too shy to ask the birds  
'Where do they grow, what have you heard?'  
 
Then out across the grassland plains  
The tiger walked with hunger pains  
While frozen still the startled deer  
But she smelled something different near.  
 
The tiger sat at village edge  
When scent of cooking reached the hedge  
That separated field from farm  
The sight of her sent out alarm.  
 
Then suddenly what struck her fur  
The men threw apple cores at her  
To chase the tiger off for good  
Who was so glad they gave her food!  
 
And so since then the tiger lives  
To guard the villagers who give  
Her fruits and greens and apples fat  
This tiger, the first vegan cat.
