David McCord Poems
The little caterpillar creeps Awhile before in silk it sleeps. It sleeps awhile before it flies,
Mr. Macklin's Jack O'Lantern
Mr. Macklin takes his knife And carves the yellow pumpkin face: Three holes bring eyes and nose to life, The mouth has thirteen teeth in place.
The little caterpillar creeps
Awhile before in silk it sleeps.
It sleeps awhile before it flies,
And flies awhile before it dies,
And that¹s the end of three good tries.
They came like dewdrops overnight
Eating every plant in sight,
Those nasty worms with legs that crawl
