Pink Worm, Pink Worm, What Do You Fear?

April is National Poetry month. Here’s a poem written to the cadence of “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?” written by Bill Martin Jr. It is a lovely children’s book, illustrated by Eric Carle.

I wrote this poem, inspired by Martin and Carle, because of the wonder of the circle of life. That we are all a part of an indivisible link in life that is both mystical and miraculous. I would love to have this illustrated and printed. If interested, please reach out to me at justin.mederich@gmail.com. Grace to you!

 

Pink Worm, Pink Worm, what do you fear?

Pink worm, pink worm, what do you fear?

I fear the blue fish swimming towards me

Blue fish, blue fish, what do you fear?

I fear the white bird diving towards me

White bird, white bird, what do you fear?

I fear the orange cat staring at me

Orange cat, orange cat, what do you fear?

I fear the black dog barking at me

Black dog, black dog, what do you fear?

I fear the human calling for me

Human, human, what do you fear?

I fear the red flame burning towards me

Red flame, red flame, what do you fear?

I fear the water quenching my flame

Water, water, what do you fear?

I fear the brown earth thirsty for me

Brown earth, Brown earth, what do you fear?

I fear the pink worm hungry for me

Pink worm, pink worm, what do you fear?
