August Monthly Challenge Theme: Reptiles Rock


August 2011

Monthly Challenge Theme:

Reptiles Rock



Show your love for your favorite reptile... be it turtle, snake, or lizard... by entering August’s Monthly Challenge: Reptiles Rock !!


Here is a famous poem by Emily Dickinson for some inspiration…



A NARROW FELLOW IN THE GRASS


A narrow Fellow in the Grass
Occasionally rides--
You may have met Him--
did you not
His notice sudden is--

The Grass divides as with a Comb--
A spotted shaft is seen--
And then it closes at your feet
And opens further on--

He likes a Boggy Acre
A Floor too cool for Corn--
Yet when a Boy, and Barefoot--
I more than once at Noon

Have passed, I thought, a Whip lash
Unbraiding in the Sun
When stooping to secure it
It wrinkled, and was gone--

Several of Nature's People
I know, and they know me--
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality--

But never met this Fellow
Attended, or alone
Without a tighter breathing
And Zero at the Bone--



What an awe-inspiring affect snakes have on us!
