Tip toe through the tulips-
by Emily H. Sturgill 5/6/15
Tip toe through the tulips,
he’s lazy, yet smart
he enjoys the natural
surroundings – as he tip toes through the tulips…
looking for his next bunny,mouse, or bird
to “play” with.
He loves the chase and the hunt-
not enough warrior spirit to go
in for the kill
or no perhaps that is me.
He brings us presents half alive,
and I try to free as as many as I can.
It’s ruthless, reckless, dangerous-
yet even he knows how to
tip toe through the tulips.
He knows how to enjoy his day!
As Spring Flowers flourish the tulips eventually
will turn and tumble
downwards closing up their buds
dropping their petals
for the hot heavy humidity
of Michigan Summer,
just right around
