Poem in Spanish - "Los Animales"

Since my last poem, I found that poem-writing helps me to improve my Spanish on a large scale. It's something I enjoy, and a really useful way to utilize my vocabulary without sounding awkward. Once again, enjoy! ^-^

=====================================================

Los Animales

=====================================================

Me gustan los animales, grandes y pequenos

De gatos, al pinguinos, al lobos, al caballos

No me gusta perros porque tengo miedo

Pero muchos gusto lindos gatos, y puedo

Pescados comen vegetales o pescados mas pequenos

Lobos comen conejitos, pajarros, y pescados

Gatos comen ratones, carne, pollos y pescados

Muchos animales son comen pescados

Y yo como pescados delicioso, con salsa

================================================

As before, please tell me if there are any mistakes I made below, and give me tips on how to improve my poem. Gracias! ^-^

Hello!

Cute poem:)

I am not perfect in Spanish either, still, I try to correct some grammar (good exercise for me, too)

Me gustan los animales, grandes y pequenos

De gatos, al pinguinos, al lobos, al caballos (? I don't know the purpose of de, al here )

No me gusta perros por que son de muedo (miedo=fear. Are you afraid of dogs? If yes, porque tengo miedo )

Pero mucho gusto lindos gatos, y puedo (y puedo hangs into nothing, it is only here for the rhyme )

Los pescados comen vegetales o pescados mas pequenos

Los lobos comen conejitos, pajaros, y pescados

Los gatos comen ratones, carne, pollos y pescados

Muchos animales comen pescados

Y yo como pescados deliciosos, con salsa

Generally: 1. comemos means we eat, and comen means they eat.

2. In English, when you make a general statement, "Cats eat mice", you omit "the". (so not "The cats eat mice") But in Spanish, as far as I know, you use el, la, los, las in general statements. Los gatos comen ratones.

Thank you! ^-^

The purpose of "de" and "al" we to say "From cats, to wolves, etc.". : )

Yeah, I'm scared of dogs. >.<

Thanks for all your help! ^-^

And one more: No me gustan los perros.

If the thing you like (or don't like) is plural, use gustan. And there is an article after gustan, I don't know why, but Duo only accepts it this way.
