Who Am I?

I am a clown,
But I know no jokes.
In orange and white,
I wear a scaled cloak.

I hide from
Various enemies
By living in
Wavy anemones.

Served on a dish,
I'm not delish,
I am a ______ ______!

  7. Riddle poems are such fun. And the rhyming is wonderful. I envision the answer on the flip of the page tagging another riddle poem.

  8. Lively and engaging -- and you have an ocean of other characters to choose from for the book we all trust you are going to write!

    1. Thank you, Keri! So true, with the ocean it would take several books to even scratch the surface of all the possible creatures to write about. So many good ideas! =)
