This is Our World, by David Dale

Below is an extract from one of David Dales children's poems, This is Our World. It's about a group of garden insects that encounter - and fear - a visiting spider. The accompanying illustrations are also by David.

Illustration from This is Our World

          This is our world we call the garden
          It sits behind the high wooden shed
          Amid the leaf covered ground, this is our bed
          We live out our lives, a life nobody sees
          We are happy and jolly, and we do what we please

Illustration from This is Our World

          Piao and Liang are two of a kind
          One walked in front and the other behind
          Piao flew up in the sunny blue sky with fiery red wings
          With Liang by her side, these ladies in red
          Flew over the garden and over the high wooden shed

Illustration from This is Our World

          Ru chang had a body that was both long and round
          He spent most of the day playing deep underground
          He enjoyed a good wiggle amongst the dry leaves
          But when the sun sank slowly behind the high wooden shed
          Ru chang and his friends knew is was soon time for bed

Illustration from This is Our World

          Pangzi walked past a pipe that was all dark and hollow
          Pangzi took a quick look, then all shocked and surprised
          Shining out of the darkness, he saw two glowing green eyes
          It was like a monster creeping out of the night
          Pangzi couldn't more, he just froze there in fright
