These Amazing Creatures

“These Amazing Creatures,” Friend, May 1986, 22

These Amazing Creatures

I put my face

Next to spiderweb lace

And marvel how creatures

So tiny and small

Know how to do things

I can’t do at all!

I love the bees’ honey;

I buy it with money.

I couldn’t take pollen

From out of the flowers

And turn it to honey

If I tried to for hours!

The ants work very hard

Building homes in my yard.

They dig tunnels and rooms,

And they do it so well

That I couldn’t improve on

Their “Anthill Hotel.”

Each of God’s creatures

Has wonderful features.

He must love each one

To create them that way.

So let’s learn from all

Living things every day!
