Ants - Poem by Jacqui Broad

Ants are my favorite:
I follow with interest
their search for food,
walking in a line,
some up, some down.
They don't stop to chat,
just keep on moving.
Lazing on a Sunday,
I learn a lesson:
Get up!
Get busy!

    Fascinating, we are always learning and have so much to learn.
    I too enjoy the pleasures of the smallest things.

    'some up, some down.
    They don't stop to chat,
    just keep on moving.'
