Counting by Emilie Poulsson

Here is the beehive. Where are the bees?

Hidden away where nobody sees.
Soon they come creeping out of the hive—
One!—two!—three! four! five!

Once I saw an ant hill
With no ants about;
So I said, “Dear little ants,
Won’t you please come out?”
Then as if the little ants
Had heard my call—
One! two! three! four! five came out!
And that was all!
