Earthworm Sonnet

Among the lowly creatures we can see

The introverted earthworms hide

Until a heavy rainstorm sets them free

And makes them for a time come be outside

Unlike their cousin snake they slither not

But glide instead along the wet driveway

Moving quickly to a brand new dirt plot

Not quick enough some soon are bird buffet

Survivors still are gliding toward the goal

A place where their new home they now can dig

Creating for themselves a home sweet hole

Until the boy comes by with fishing rig

The fishing trip with dad just couldn’t wait

The boy was happy to have found live bait.
