A slug is a lowly creature
traversing diverse terrains.
A body of solid muscle,
he makes smooth and steady gains.
Butterfly, a patient creature,
is chewing leaves as time crawls by.
Cocooned in sleep, she dreams and waits
for glory days when she will fly!
Honeybees are social creatures.
Exchanging messages, they dance,
sharing locations of flowers…
Honey bees leave nothing to chance!
Ants are industrious creatures…
Mighty for their minuscule size.
Co-operation builds communities…
Working together is so civilized!
Fireflies are delightful creatures,
illuminating the dark.
Unassuming in the daylight,
as nightlights, fireflies make their mark!
