“The Weather Zoo,” Friend, Feb. 1991, 21

The Weather Zoo

FOG is a great gray elephant

on a runaway skateboard,

rolling in at breakneck speed—

Stay out of its way!

RAIN is a porcupine

spearing the earth

with its wet quills.

SNOW is a feathery fat bird

flying light … and slow … and low.

The SUN is a friendly yellow lion

with a pointed starry mane,

smiling at the world.
