Kids poem: The fly

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 5, 2016.

  1. Baby Bye,
    Here's a fly;
    Let us watch him, you and I.
    How he crawls
    Up the walls;
    Yet he never falls !

    I believe with six such legs
    You and I could walk on eggs.
    There he goes
    On his toes
    Tickling baby's nose.

    Spots of red
    Dot his head;
    Rainbows on his back are spread.
    That small speck
    Is his neck;
    See him nod and beck.

    I can show you, if you choose
    Where to look to find his shoes
    Three small pairs
    Made of hairs;
    These he always wears.

    He can eat
    Bread and meat;
    There's his mouth between his feet.
    When it rains
    He complains
    On the window-panes.

    Tongues to talk have you and I;
    God has given the little fly
    No such things;
    So he sings
    With his buzzing wings.

    In the sun
    Webs are spun,
    What if he gets into one?
    Little fly,
    Ope your eye;
    Spiders are near by;

    And a secret I can tell
    Spiders never use flies well.
    Then away,
    Do not stay.
    Little fly, good day.

    - Theodore Titian
