Creepy Crawlies

Creepy Crawlies all around

Some in the trees and some on the ground

What will I find on a creepy crawly hunt?

 

I spy a spider, with eight legs

Spinning a web more fragile than eggs

Hoping to catch a fly I bet

A big fat juicy one I’m sure she’ll get!

There is a stick insect, clinging to a tree

I see him, but he doesn’t see me.

His body is long and he looks like a stick

He hides from the birds by performing this trick!

Is that a centipede?  What a treat.

If he stands still I’ll count his feet.

But he’s wriggling and he’s jiggling and he’s disappeared

He must have seen me coming and he’s run off scared.

Hiding in the grass is a hoppy little guy

His legs are really strong and he can jump so high.

He might think he’s in danger, but I just want to play

Nope! He’s not sticking round today.

There’s a flying insect to whom I’ll give some space

She buzzes and she flits and she rules this place.

If I make her mad, she’s bound to try and sting

So I’ll walk away quickly and let her do her thing.

I’ve seen them in the sky and I’ve seen them on the ground.

I’ve had fun on my creepy crawly hunt!
