My name is Tola’at,
I’m a worm in the ground,
I live in the garden and dig all around.
My family and I
Weren’t born but were hatched,
Our cocoons were so tiny, and you see, we all matched.
HaShem created earthworms
To mix soil that has hardened
It helps the plants grow in a soft, fertile garden.
I work with my friends,
As we dig up the ground,
We make tunnels in the dirt and often leave a big mound!
I crawl on my stomach,
And I move oh so slow,
But without arms or legs it’s the best way to go.
I eat fruits and veggies,
Oatmeal fills up my tummy,
Carrots, apples and bananas, they’re all healthy and yummy.
But when daylight turns dark,
And the sun sets over the hill,
I go into my room where it’s quiet and still.
I crawl to my bed,
Say my prayers for the night,
And rest in sweet slumber until morning’s first light.
Good night, Mommy!
Good night, Daddy!
Good night, HaShem!
