From under a stone a beetle looked out
And glanced at the sun shining down.
"I’ll have an adventure," Beetle then thought,
And decided to visit the town.
B U T . . .
There were so many people, and all with big feet,
And their talking gave Beetle earache.
"The traffic! My goodness!” poor Beetle exclaimed,
“I think that I’ve made a mistake.”
So he hurried back home to his safe little stone,
And he gazed at the garden around,
How glad was poor Beetle to be home again,
In a place where he felt safe and sound.
