Baby Turtles


We see them
In the spring and fall.
They hope they won't
Be seen at all.
So tiny and so all alone.
Small marching steps.
They're always home.
It seems they know
Which route to choose.
Their marching orders
So imbued.
I stop to watch.
They're not afraid.
They're all brave soldiers
On parade.
