If I was a worm....

It's Day 23 of  the Blogging from A to Z  April 2015 Challenge




If I was a worm
I’d wriggle and turn
and dig a deep hole
where I’d hide

If I was a frog
I’d sit on a log
and stick out my tongue
and catch flies

If I was a bee
I’d buzz round a tree
and dive into flowers
to make honey

If I was a mouse
I’d live in your house

and eat all your cheese
and your bread

If I was a snail
I’d leave a white trail
and sleep in a shell
on my back

If I was a child
that lived in the wild
and my mum and my dad
said I could

What I would do
is start my own zoo
with some ants and some slugs

and bugs too
!





Tomorrows short story is called The Xylophone

  10. Since I am a cat, I'll sleep in mom's nap, and later, perhaps, for dinner, a rat! Sorry, just reading my cat's mind. Sweet poem.
