The Climbing Adventure (Preschool) - Poem by C.J. Heck
Climbing-climbing up the rock
through the woods, my hands are locked
on the rope so prickly-prickly
past the pine tree, tickly-tickly.
muscles feel like they’re on fire!
Through the dry leaves, rustle-rustle,
feel the wind push, hustle-hustle.
A long long way to the tippity top.
Hold on tight or flippity flop!
One foot here, then one foot there,
(wish steps in rocks were everywhere) .
Huffing-puffing but not quite there.
Look out! There’s a grizzly bear!
Shhh-shhh use tippy-toes.
He’s turning now. See, there he goes!
Uh oh, snakes beside me, sliding-gliding!
Nowhere to go for hiding-hiding!
Danger-danger! I can see
the snakes are slithering after me,
but no, they’re going in the ground
through those holes going down-down
Oh no, growling-growling from behind!
If I turn, what will I find?
A grumpy-grumpy scary thing?
I wish I brought a bell to ring!
It’s getting dark and hard to see
the something else that’s chasing me!
Oh my gosh … I’m at the top.
I guess for now, I‘ll have to stop.
That was fun, I love pretending …
but I wish the stairs were never ending!
