Short Poems

The Splashing Hippo

In the river, large and bold
The hippopotamus does behold
Soaking up the sun’s warm rays
Losing count of the passing days

With a mighty leap and a splash
The hippo dives in with a crash
Creating ripples in the water
A sight that no one could bother

The Lazy Hippo

The hippo lies in the mud
With nothing to do but hang around
Snorting and yawning all day long
In a peaceful state, far from wrong

It opens its jaws wide and wide
Revealing its canine teeth side by side
But don’t fret, it’s not a warning
Just the hippo’s way of yawning

The Hungry Hippo

The hippo grazes through the night
Chomping on grass with all its might
A creature big and always in need
Of grass and leaves, its only feed

With a stomach that’s never full
The hippo’s always on the pull
Biting off chunks with a loud munch
Devouring all it can for lunch

The Friendly Hippo

The hippo is a friendly chap
Even though it might seem a bit fat
It bares its teeth, but not in anger
Only to show its friendly banter

The hippo loves to make new friends
And with its fun personality, everyone bends
To the charm of this quirky beast
Whose cuddly nature never seems to cease.

Medium Poems

1. Name: “Hippos in the Water”
Hippos in the water, so grand and so bold,
Their massive bodies barely sink below.
With snorts and grunts, they play and they roll,
As if they haven’t got a single care to know.

The sun glimmers bright, illuminating their skin,
Creating ripples as they splash and they dive.
Such gentle giants, nature’s fearless kin,
In the cool blue waters, they just thrive.

2. Name: “Majestic Beasts”
Hippopotamus, a wonder of creation,
Its massive form a sight to behold.
A beast of size beyond imagination,
Yet so graceful within its fold.

With thick skin and wee beady eyes,
A robust frame and mighty jaw,
Hippos command with power and stride,
Truly majestic above all.

3. Name: “The Demure Hippopotamus”
People often assume hippos are grumpy and mean,
But some may have a gentler gene.
The demure Hippo likes to relax in the sun,
As it nibbles on the grass, slow and undone.

No need to rush or be in a hurry,
Just a leisurely stroll will make it merry.
Despite their size, some hippos are shy,
Living a peaceful existence, a heartwarming sigh.

Long Poems

The Mighty Hippopotamus

In the rivers of Africa,
Where the water runs deep,
Lives a creature quite mighty,
A fearsome beast, indeed.

With a massive body,
And a head so large,
The hippopotamus takes charge,
In its watery domain.

Its skin is thick and grey,
And its eyes peer out so bright,
While its razor-sharp teeth,
Are a formidable sight.

But despite its powerful build,
The hippo is quite endearing,
As it chomps on its food,
With a sound that is endearing.

It wades through the water,
With a grace all its own,
As it munches on plants,
And sometimes a juicy bone.

And when danger draws near,
The hippo will not cower,
For it knows its strength,
And will protect its power.

So let us hail the hippopotamus,
The mighty king of the river,
And give it the respect,
That it so truly deserves.
