September Poem

Chopbox Design Sample

Who Comes?

Rain tapped on the doors of earth.

I’m coming, said the millepede

The lazy sleepy earthbeast

And crawled out of his hole all dressed up in rings.

 

Rain tapped on the doors of earth.

I’m coming, said the earthworm

The slimy sleepy earthbeast

And slipped out of his hole with nothing on at all.

 

Rain tapped on the doors of earth.

I’m coming, said the flowers

The dainty smiling dancers

And tripped into the showers in their blue, red and gold.
