The Kangaroo’s Courtship

by Jane Yolen

“Oh will you be my wallaby?”
Asked Mr. Kangaroo.
“For we could find so very many
Jumping things to do.
I have a pocket two feet wide
And deep inside,
My dear you’d ride—
Oh, come and be my bouncing bride,
My Valentine, my side-by-side
I am in love with you.”
