A Slug in the grass
His head was up
He was looking around
And suddenly he stopped

He saw a tiny spider
On his way to the park
And they became friends

    I wanted to share this with my fellow poets and friends here on Ficly. I was reminded of this little poem my son wrote. There was a contest to write a poem about invertebrates at a local Nature reserve and he wanted to participate- so i explained what a poem was and how it rhymed and all I did was repeat each line after he said it so he could come up with the next line- it was amazing to see the mind of this 3yr old work- I am still amazed and he is now 18 and still writing- I just don’t repeat it anymore ;)
