The Sonoran Desert

The Sonoran Desert is
a dry place. I went there
one day. I saw the saguaros
there. They say they're the
mighty giants of the desert.

I saw the mesquites and
the palo verdes. They were
wonderful. I saw the cholla
and barell cactus.

I saw a rattle snake
With its beautiful slithering scales
sliding through the dusty dirt.
It's shiny scales
were like the rays of the

I saw three javelinas
scampering through the
beautiful dusty desert.

And this wasn't like any
old trip because this trip
will last a lifetime.
