Bugs by Marianne Scarfe

Water, Water

by Marianne Scarfe

Creepy crawlies are what l like Worms who squirm and bugs that bite And beetles that scurry In the dark of the night! And ants who march in a long, long line And carry a crumb from the left to the right! Slugs who move very slowly In a trail of slippery slime And woodlice awoken From an upturned stone Covered in earth and grime! Spiders waiting in silken webs Hoping to catch a fly Watching the world very quietly They pounce in the blink of an eye!
