The Beautiful Snails - Poem by Sheena Blackhall

An armada of beautiful snails
Is gliding across the lawn
On wonderful silver trails

An Armada of veautiful snails
In full sail, their elegant horns
Unfurled, like Trafalgar rigging
Are peering with glistening eyes
Through dewdropp antennae
At the dawn they are navigating

Each tortoiseshell cloak
Is curled as a sleeping fox
Such Celtic linking!
They ripple across the cat-walk
Like models, slinking
