Splash — It's National Poetry Month

Turtle Says

On land
I'm a mud soldier
in a homemade helmet,
slowpoking my way along.
I'm told
I creep
like a sleepwlker,
and it's true.
               No matter.
In water,
on the other hand,
I'm a star,
a swooper, a glider,
a leaper, a flyer,
a ballet dancer
in my green tutu.
That's true, too.

Enjoy other poems by Constance Levy from her delightful book, Splash! Poems of Our Watery World (with illustrations by David Soman).
