These Amazing Creatures

    I put my face

    Next to spiderweb lace

    And marvel how creatures

    So tiny and small

    Know how to do things

    I can’t do at all!

    I love the bees’ honey;

    I buy it with money.

    I couldn’t take pollen

    From out of the flowers

    And turn it to honey

    If I tried to for hours!

    The ants work very hard

    Building homes in my yard.

    They dig tunnels and rooms,

    And they do it so well

    That I couldn’t improve on

    Their “Anthill Hotel.”

    Each of God’s creatures

    Has wonderful features.

    He must love each one

    To create them that way.

    So let’s learn from all

    Living things every day!
