The Queen

The city is crowded,
Filled with giant ants
Walking everyday on the streets
Saying hello
To every other ant they meet
And pass by,

But I

On a sunny day
Would see a girl,
Must be the queen,
No hello
To anyone she meets,
She's shy,

But I

Would wear a smile
Smell her scent
With the swaying feelers of mine,
She wears it too
In the reds and would shine
Smiling shy,

And I

Would bring her to my hill,
While brothers are gone
And Maa's weighing away,
We gaze at the starry sky
And till morn she would stay,
But why

A Goodbye

Would rustle in the drowsy wind
That blows our tale away,
the stars are gone
As she shied away
From my hill and the soiled hay
