The Blue Jay and The Inch Worm - Poem

Boy and worm
Boy and worm

April Poetry Month

Poem 13

Good morning little inch worm

Where'd you sleep?

Where's your mama?

What do you eat?

*

You're so happy

Inching along

Can you whistle,

Or sing a song?

*

Hello! I'm Johathan

What's your name?

You wanna' come in

And play a game?


Can you climb a tree

Like kitty cats do?

Look out! Little worm

A birds watching you!

*

Awww, so sorry,

This poem has to end.

A big fat blue jay

Snatched my friend.

When I read your title, Ann, I knew somehow that cute lil inchworm was not long for this world. This poem is cute, too.

He he he! Audrey Howitt! You got me into this. I'm delirious! In the fetal(maybe I should say fatal)position. Still in the running of Poetry month, suppose I have to expose my silly self.

Hi Ann,

I had to vote up--because this is such a darling poem--and I want that little boy--he is so precious.

I hope all is well with you and yours, and you have a great weekend.

Your Hub Friend,

Bobbi
