LITTLE SNAIL by Hilda Conkling









LITTLE SNAIL

by Hilda Conkling


I saw a little snail

     Come down the garden walk.

     He wagged his head this way . . . that way . . .

     Like a clown in a circus.

     He looked from side to side

     As though he were from a different country.

     I have always said he carries his house on his back . . .

     To-day in the rain

     I saw that it was his umbrella!
