The Worm

By Ralph Bergengren 1871–1947 Ralph Bergengren
When the earth is turned in spring
The worms are fat as anything.
And birds come flying all around
To eat the worms right off the ground.
They like the worms just as much as I
Like bread and milk and apple pie.
And once, when I was very young,
I put a worm right on my tongue.
I didn't like the taste a bit,
And so I didn't swallow it.
But oh, it makes my Mother squirm
Because she thinks I ate that worm!

The girls have been out all day today! It is March Break for them so they have been spending as much time as they can outdoors. Our backyard is still a wreck but that is our project this year. This week has been really nice. The weather is beautiful for this time of year and the girls were out on a worm hunt. They found plenty and even made the worms a home. I remember being a child and doing these exact same things with my sisters!

Here are a couple of photos of the worms' home! Not bad eh? My girls have quite an imagination:)
