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.
