Turtles

Turtles

by me, Canoe Communications

Turtles swimming in a brook,

Please come closer for a look.

Your reptile colors of olive green, brown and black,

And marked shells protecting against attack.

You bask upon a rock or sunken tree,

To have the sun warm your cold bodies.

Boxy turtles paddling by the shore,

Move over here once more.

Turtles float in the water my way,

I like to watch you swim, sway.

I could gaze at you for a while,

Gentle creatures that make me smile.
