The Tortoise And His Hat - Poem by Mimie Durand

The hare and the tortoise
Went for a walk
To see what they could see,
They saw a dog way up in a tree
Along with a bunch of Fleas.

The dog began to howl
And the hare held his ears,
The tortoise hid his head so deep,
For years he slept in a very deep sleep,
And vowed his head he would forever keep.

The years have gone by quickly,
The tortoise his head erected,
The hare laughed so hard he cried,
The tortoise was so mad he sighed,
And the hare he did apologize.

Hare was laughing at a thing,
A thing on tortoise’s head,
It looked like hair,
So tortoise declared
I’ll wear a hat that none can compare; so there!
