Tiger, Cheetah, Volcano (a poem by Addison)

My eyes stare at the painting, I can't take my eyes off of it

It runs as fast as a cheetah

"pound, pound, pound" goes it

I hear the tiger roaring

as loud as a volcano

blue, pink, orange, the colors of

a tropical smoothie. It makes

me feel happy and glad

The tiger rubs his face against

me, I smile

blue, pink, orange, the colors I love.
