Dear Turtle Poem

The many leaves fell
from the trees yesterday
and I was very sad
for I could not find you

when I thought of you
walking all alone
in a strange place
tears came
streaming down my face

I felt very blue
till I found you
in the leaves outside

my mother said
my tears made
everybody feel
very blue
(I am sorry, everybody)

please, my little turtle
please don't get lost again
