.4. Yard Workers - Poem by David Threadgold

Wasps on the wind-fallen
Apples and pears
Spiders make cobwebs
On patio chairs

Woodlice on rotten wood
Under the shed
Ants moving home
To our new flower bed

Aphids drink sap
From a red roses stem
Ladybirds grazing
Don’t forget them

All kinds of insects
Are working so hard
To find an existence
In our old backyard
