POEM : DISCOVERY



DISCOVERY

In a puddle left from last week’s  rain,
      a friend of mine whose name is Joe
      caught a tadpole, and showed me where
      its froggy legs were beginning to grow.

Then we turned over a musty log,
      with lichens on it in a row,
      and found some fiddleheads of ferns
      uncoiling out of the moss below.

We hunted around and saw the first
      Jack-in-the-pulpits beginning to show,
      and even spotted under a rock
      where spotted salamanders go.

I learned all this one morning from Joe,
but how much more there is to know!
