Five Free Verse Poems About Pigs

1. The Piglet’s Dance

In the heart of the farm, under the golden sun,

A piglet prances, full of joy and fun.

His tiny hooves, they tap and twirl,

In his own little world, a precious pearl.

His snout in the mud, he finds delight,

In the simplest of things, from morning till night.

Beneath the apple tree, the old sow rests,

Her wisdom is vast, in quiet she invests.

She is a queen, among pigs, without the need for wings.

In the face of danger, he answers the call.

Yet beneath his strength, there lies a heart,

Full of love for his family, he plays his part.

4. The Swineherd’s Song

The swineherd sings, his voice rings clear,

A melody for his pigs, a tune so dear.

Guiding his charges, from daylight to twilight.

In their grunts and oinks, he finds a symphony,

A language of love, a pig’s harmony.

5. The Pig’s Dream

In the heart of the pig, a dream takes root,

Of open fields, and the taste of fruit.

He dreams of mud baths under open skies,

Of peaceful nights, under the moon’s watchful eyes.

In his dreams, he finds a world so fair,

A pig’s paradise, free of worry and care.

Five Sonnet Poems About Pigs

1. “The Gracious Grunters”

In fields of green, where daisies dare to bloom,

The pigs reside, in mud and muck they play.

Their grunts and squeals break the morning gloom,

A symphony that marks the start of day.

Not just a beast, but a creature of charm,

With curious eyes and a snout like a spade.

A task performed with quiet stealth.

In their pursuit of a tasty treat,

They sow the seeds for crops we eat.

Celebrate the pig, the tiller of earth,

For in their labors, we find our worth.

So let’s applaud these joyous jesters,

In life’s grand play, they are the best stars.

Pigs inspire both respect and love.

A creature of mirth, not of frown.

In mud and muck, you wallow with glee,

A sight that fills my heart with glee.

Five Villanelle Poems About Pigs

1. “Pigs in the Morning Light”

The pigs in the morning light, so bright,

Dancing in the mud, in pure delight,

Their grunts and squeals echoing in the night.

They roll and play, out of sight,

In the farmyard, under the kite,

The pigs in the morning light, so bright.

Their pink hides gleam, oh what a sight,

As they bask in the sun’s soft light,

Their grunts and squeals echoing in the night.

The sows and piglets, a family’s might,

Together they stay, holding tight,

The pigs in the morning light, so bright.

Through the day and into the night,

They live their lives with all their might,

Their grunts and squeals echoing in the night.

As the moon rises, they say goodnight,

Dreaming of tomorrow’s light,

The pigs in the morning light, so bright,

Their grunts and squeals echoing in the night.

2. “The Song of the Sow”

In the sty, the sow sings her song,

Soft and low, all the day long,

To her piglets, where they belong.

Her lullaby, strong and strong,

Echoes around the farm, a throng,

In the sty, the sow sings her song.

The piglets listen, their bond is strong,

They know their mother will never be wrong,

To her piglets, where they belong.

She sings of mud baths, and days long,

Of corn fields, and the rooster’s song,

In the sty, the sow sings her song.

Her voice is soothing, it makes them strong,

And to her side, they will always throng,

To her piglets, where they belong.

As the day ends, and shadows are long,

She sings them to sleep with her song,

In the sty, the sow sings her song,

To her piglets, where they belong.

3. “The Dance of the Piglets”

Under the moonlight, the piglets dance,

Round and round, in a trance,

Their tiny hooves, a rhythmic prance.

They squeal and grunt, in advance,

In the cool night air, they take their chance,

Under the moonlight, the piglets dance.

They play and frolic, in a glance,

This is their time, their romance,

Their tiny hooves, a rhythmic prance.

They spin and twirl, like leaves in France,

Under the star’s bright expanse,

Under the moonlight, the piglets dance.

As the night deepens, they enhance,

Their joy and laughter, their circumstance,

Their tiny hooves, a rhythmic prance.

As dawn breaks, they end their dance,

Back to the sty, they advance,

Under the moonlight, the piglets dance,

Their tiny hooves, a rhythmic prance.

4. “Ode to the Boar”

The boar, in his might, stands tall,

His tusks gleaming, he answers the call,

In the forest, he rules them all.

He roams the woods, from spring to fall,

His grunts echoing, through the hall,

The boar, in his might, stands tall.

His presence, it does enthrall,

The creatures watch, as if in thrall,

In the forest, he rules them all.

He leads his herd, big and small,

His strength and courage, does not stall,

The boar, in his might, stands tall.

As the sun sets, shadows fall,

He returns to his den, his own personal hall,

In the forest, he rules them all.

His reign is mighty, like a wall,

His power, it does not pall,

The boar, in his might, stands tall,

In the forest, he rules them all.

5. “The Pig Farmer’s Tale”

I rise with the sun, to the pigs I hail,

In the sty and the barn, along the trail,

This is my life, the pig farmer’s tale.

I feed and clean, without fail,

Their grunts and squeals, my daily mail,

I rise with the sun, to the pigs I hail.

They roll in the mud, their joy unveiled,

Their happiness, it does prevail,

This is my life, the pig farmer’s tale.

Through the seasons, we set sail,

In sunshine, rain, or gale,

I rise with the sun, to the pigs I hail.

The pigs, they thrive, they do not ail,

Their health and well-being, the holy grail,

This is my life, the pig farmer’s tale.

As the day ends, under the veil,

I say goodnight, to the sow and the male,

I rise with the sun, to the pigs I hail,

This is my life, the pig farmer’s tale.
