Sample poem:
Lumpy Mounds
These lumpy mounds upon the ground, you may not recognize.
They're left behind once we have dined-that's how we fertilize!
We're long and lithe, we wriggle and writhe; of dead things we dispose.
We daily toil to plow the soil, and help stuff decompose!
What are they?
They're earthworm castings .
Sample "naturalist note" to support photos after creature is revealed: Long and thin, squirmy and moist, lowly earthworms do mighty work. By spending their days 'worming' through the earth, wiggling and wriggling right and left, they work the soil much like a plow. That alone is a big job, but earthworms do even more. They are "decomposers"-creatures that consume dead plants and animals. The health of our planet depends on the work of decomposers.
