LITTLE SNAIL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I saw a little snail / come down the garden walk
Last Line: I saw that it was his umbrella!
Subject(s): Snails


I SAW a little snail
Come down the garden walk.
He wagged his head this way . . . that way . . .
Like a clown in a circus.
He looked from side to side
As though he were from a different country.
I have always said he carries his house on his back . . .
To-day in the rain
I saw that it was his umbrella!
