The Long Climb Up

Long Way Up

The Ants 
Douglas Florian 

Ants are scantily 
Half an inch long,
But for their size 
They’re very strong.
Ants tote leaves 
Five times their weight 
Back to their nest 
At a speedy rate.
They walk on tree limbs 
Upside down 
A hundred feet 
Above the ground,
While down below 
Beneath a mound 
They’re building tunnels 
And so it’s been 
And it will be 
Since greatest 
Ant antiquity.
