Basic Kindness To Bugs Imprisoned On Window Pane

Planting glass on window pane,

Sliding it to tiring bug –

A creepy-crawly stuck inside.

You slide it forward

Delicately inching toward

The anthropod.

Lifting glass you slip a card

To gather fly or bee or bug

Safe under glass,

Protected from a dire passing.

Lifting whole so carefully

So as to not crush head or wing

While bearing thing

To door and freedom.

It, a test, trial, task – a problem

Of the kind that gets you points in heaven

And, of which you feel well pleased

When finally you do succeed.
