Chinese New Year

Pic 1

An energetic poem about the sights and sounds of the Chinese New Year. Check out our Fun Stuff page for great activities to go with this poem.

There's a lion in the street!
Dancing on its lion feet.

Yellow body, fierce roars
Long sharp teeth and open jaws.

There's a dragon in the street!
Dancing on its dragon feet.

Spiky tail, eyes that glare
This dragon's trying hard to scare.

There are people in the street
Dancing on their happy feet.

Drums and cymbals make a din
Letting Chinese New Year in.

Bang! Crash!
Clang! Clash!
