I wondered where he was
then I saw him out in the garden
by the garden path, watching a stream of ants
as they crossed from one side to the other.
Suddenly, and quite unexpectedly
he stamped his foot down hard.
A little severe I thought,
they didn’t know what happened.
Then he saw me standing at the window,
he read my eyes immediately -
‘They can take it Dad’
as he left the ants to repair their path.
