Little Critters - Poem by Kari Mattlage

If spiders could scream and flies could cry,
Do you think we would stop to wonder why?
Maybe they hold the secrets to the world,
Or know the recipe for the magical cure.
What if ladybugs could whisper your future?
Would you be gentler to creatures?
Suppose snails held the key to your health,
Hopefully you would let them stay in your garden and wish them well.
And I’m pretty sure squirrels know all the short-cuts.
Scientists say that they can remember the location of three thousand nuts.
All the little creatures matter, more than you know,
With nature, it’s best to tip toe,
It’s our future they hold.
