A Child's Dream - Poem by Josette Lager

When I was a child
I thought as a child
but now I have set
aside these foolish
things.

When I was very young
my best friend was a
beautifull flurescent
green praying mantis.

He was my beloved ballerina,
he always seemed to be dancing
with those long flowing legs in slow
motion.He would tilt his head ever
so gently and then take his final
bow the ballet is over for now.


We had a strange kind of
communication, but I think
we loved each other in our
way.Your gone now and I'm
still here and yes, I still miss
you my dear.

How much can one really say
about a bug except I wish I
could have given you a great
big hug..
