Rhymes:

Unicorn Ponies
(sing to: “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”)

Unicorn ponies love to play
By the waterfall all the day
Splashing in the chilly stream
Eating honey, sipping cream
Laughing in the summer sun
Best friends always, having fun.

Five Little Unicorns

Five little unicorns scampered by my door
One pranced away, and then there were four.
Four little unicorns resting by a tree
One pranced away, and then there were three.
Three little unicorns of pink, green, and blue
One pranced away, and then there were two.
Two little unicorns running just for fun
One pranced away, and then there was one.
One little unicorn standing in the sun.
It pranced away, and then there were none.
