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!
