Ants

Ants are my favorite:
I follow with interest
their search for food,
walking in a line,
some up, some down.
They don't stop to chat,
just keep on moving.
Lazing on a Sunday,
I learn a lesson:
Get up!
Get busy!

Fascinating, we are always learning and have so much to learn. I too enjoy the pleasures of the smallest things.
Oh, Harry and Larry! oh, Gary and Bary! Read this ants story. Even such a trivial beings - Simple ants can inspire you.. Oh, my god! yes they go in line scourging for food, some right, some left but never stop for a chat.............. 'some up, some down. They don't stop to chat, just keep on moving.' Yes This poems is awesome for its simplicity as my mind flashes to another poet like Blake awoke! Ha! Ha! :) :) :) :) This time simply gift some many smiles to the poetess.
