Said the slug to the ladybird: "Come and see me!

I’m black and I'm slimy as all slugs should be.

     See these trails that I leave wherever I go?

     You'll not see me run.  I always go slow."


Said the blackbird to me: “Come - listen to me!

The song which I’m singing is as clear as can be.

     From high on your roof, I feel that I'm king

     And I sing my best songs especially in Spring!"       


Said the rose to the girl: "Come and smell me!

I’m pretty and perfumed as all flowers should be.

     I sit in your garden in my pretty flower bed -

     Oh do smell my petals of velvety red.”


Said an ice cream to Jack: “Come and eat me.

I'm here in my cone and as sweet as can be."

     Said Jack to the man: “I'll buy one of those,”

     And soon it was on both his lips and his nose.


Said the nettle to the dog: “Come and touch me.

Oh I’d never hurt you.  I’m as soft as can be.”

    The dog took a sniff and was stung on his nose,

    So in future, for certain, he'll NEVER touch those.
