Monkey Poem by Marshak for children

Sailed on the ocean
From Africa sailor,
Baby monkey
As a gift we had brought.

She sits, yearning,
All night long
And this song
Differently sings:

"On the long hot South
On the trees and bushes,
I scream with my girlfriends,
Swinging on the tails.

Wonderful bananas
At home my.
Live monkeys
And no people."
