Poetry Corner

I have discovered that today is National Escargot day, so nothing would do but a poem about a snail must be found, here’s one for the children.

Snails


Slimy and slippery,
Snails are such fun.
Slowly they move,

They can’t even run

Leaving their trail
Behind as they go.
You can see where they’ve been
And how very slow.

On their back is a shell,
It’s really their home.
It’s ever so small,
But it goes where they roam.

On stalks are their eyes,
That wave all around.
One can point up,
And one to the ground!

They eat lots of plants,
And all of the flowers.
Munching away,
Especially in showers.

Shiny and slippery,
Snails are such fun.
They eat and they eat,
They must weight a ton!
