Oh tiny ant where do you go?

You dash and flitter to and fro

Treading over floor of wood

In search of something surely good?


Oh lowly ant what do you seek?

With every rise another peak

With every gap another turn

Oh tiny ant what do you yearn?


Burdens weigh upon your back

Up and down your random track

Your only goal to share with all

Yet chances great you will fall


Oh lowly ant where did you go?

There are things I need to know

In a blink you disappear

Homeward bound? Or not I fear


Oh tiny ant no more to see

Oh lowly ant you are me
