Little Talk by Aileen Fisher
Don’t you think it’s probable
that beetles, bugs, and bees
talk about a lot of things –
you know, such things as these:
The kind of weather where they live
in jungles tall with grass
and earthquakes in their villages
whenever people pass!
Of course, we’ll never know if bugs
talk very much at all,
because our ears are far too big
for talk that is so small.
This little guy was full of pollen that he was just sitting there on the ground. He was quite photogenic because of it.
