Children's Poem: "Caterpillar"

If you're like me, your inner child still remembers watching a fuzzy caterpillar as it undulated across something.

They never seemed to get theirs tangled up like I did ...

Fuzzy caterpillar
with your million-jillion feet,
how do you know which foot should go,
as you're walking on that leaf?

You make it look so easy,
right-left-right, the way you do,
sometimes MY feet get tangled up
and I have only TWO ...

("Caterpillar" from the book, "Me Too Preschool Poetry", by CJ Heck)
