From a seated position,
I bend my knees and open my legs wide.
I am becoming a shy turtle,
Carrying a shell in which to hide.
With my feet flat on the floor,
I bring my arms under my knees.
Looking down toward my belly,
I count, "One-two-three!"
Then slowly lifting my head out of my shell,
I look up and see that
The world around me is swell.
