Isobel Morris
Isobel Morris

My name is Isobel Morris, I am nine years old and very tall for my age. I have short, dark brown hair and brown eyes. I like animals and I dislike tomatoes. I have a pet cat called Lucky who is white with black splodges. I really enjoy writing stories, art and sports. When I wrote the poem 'The animal ways' I was just nine years old.

The animal ways by Isobel Morris


Of course, the cat is the past and present ,as the dog is the bat and ball.

As horses are the jumps and poles, as the lamb is the stretch of spring.

For the bird is the feather of flight, and the eagle the master of sight.

As the monkey is quick and sleek, and the pelican has a very long beak.
