T hat Wondrous Hippo We Once Knew
A story from the wonderful world of Sophie, Ron & Jackie Fletcher
A Hippopotamus we once knew had tiny buds that grew and grew until two giant wings stood there; both pointed high into the air.
A gianormous Hippo butterfly; down on the ground aimed for the sky. Standing there in bright sunlight, a winged Hippo; a wondrous sight. She took off running toward the Sun, already having so much fun
Now at full run with wings aflapping; the other Hippo's were all clapping, as in the air she slowly rose until the ground it left her toes.
So there it is, that Hippo flew; that wondrous Hippo we once knew. And now that Hippo, wild and free lives in a nest high in a tree.
