I took my turtle
For a walk today
The sun was shining
The air was clear
We stopped to rest
Along the way
It only took
A year.

I taped a string
To her little shell
I packed myself
Some lunch
Then off we strolled
O'er hill and dell
She said she liked my
Berry punch.

I taught her to sing
Some rebel songs
She was great at
She wore little sandals
I wore purple thongs
It was lovely to see
The sun rising.

She never complained
(I didn't either)
She wove flowers
To make me a locket.
When night came to call
The grass was my bed
And I let her retire
In my pocket.

Loved it, and had turtles in my childhood. Sometimes see them crossing the back country roads in summer. In fact, there is a turtle crossing sign up the road from my trailer. Don't see none cross there yet though.
