Wednesday Words of Wisdom

12 Jun

Hurt no living thing:
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing.
~Christina Georgina Rossetti
Little bug, little bug
There crawling on my floor.
I tried to pick you up
And get you out the door.
You wiggled and you squirmed
Poor little bug of black,
Do me a big favor,
And please do not come back.
(Or I’ll squish you!)

Toni Andrukaitis

Yes, this is a true story. And NO, I wouldn’t squish him. I’d probably just keep taking him outside. Now, spiders, scorpions and snakes… that’s another story.
