Beautiful Turtle

The Little Turtle

There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.
He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.
He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn’t catch me.

Beautiful turtle caught the eye of Gabe as he was biking
near University of Maryland, College Park.
And the random beauty of it is the UMD mascot is
a non other than a….Terapin. A true reminder that
slow and steady wins the race.
