Minibeast Poems
for Children

By Josie Whitehead


By Josie Whitehead

Minibeast Miracles

A fly can walk upon a wall
    And never tumble down.
Small tadpoles never learn to swim,
    Yet never ever drown.

Up on the ceiling of the room
     A spider walks along
And, unlike me, can make a web
     That’s oh so very strong.

The butterfly has pretty wings:
    She’s lucky - she can fly -
But I know I can’t do these things
    And never really try.

The bee lands on a nice red rose.
   That’s something you can’t do.
Well, would you like to be like them
    Or be a child, like you?
