the little turtle

by alison
(chatham illinois usa)

there lived a turtle.
he lived in a box.
he swam in a puddle.
he climbed on the rocks.

he snapped at a mosquito.
he snapped at a flea.
he snapped at a minnow.
and he snapped at me.

he caught the mosquito.
he caught the flea.
he caught the minnow.
but he didn't catch me.
