A little rhyming story about a family of worms and, as everyone knows, worms love to go for a walk when it rains. It's getting back home that is sometimes a problem.
Splish! Splosh! Splash! Drip! Drop! Drip!
A family of worms are going on a trip.
"The rain is falling heavily." hear their mother say.
"Let us take the children out on this lovely day."
"Yes, alright my dear." father worm replied.
He called to all the children and stood them side by side.
"Now, all of you be ready." father told them all.
"To come back very quickly if either of us call.
It may be just a shower. It may not rain all day.
The sunshine has the power to turn us into clay."
They all went off to play and everything was fine,
Until the rain stopped falling and the sun began to shine.
Mother worm and father worm called for them to come,
But those naughty little worms weren't ready to go home.
They had all forgotten what their father said,
Their lovely pale skin was starting to turn red.
Father went to fetch them, saying that they should,
Go where mother led them, through the slimy mud.
Quickly then they followed her, she made them wriggle down,
To their earthy home, wet and soft and brown.
Then she looked for father worm, to see where he had gone;
He lay there on the pathway, struggling all alone.
Mother went to help him, to be there by his side;
When she thought that he would die, she cried and cried and cried.
All her little teardrops were like a shower of rain;
Wriggling through the puddles, they both came home again.
