The Cocoon

The Cocoon

written by: Sofia Kioroglou


Some lazy silkworms woke up this morning
After a protracted period of hibernation
They set to work to weave their cocoon of glory

While creating their masterpiece,
The smartest of them architects
Had a brilliant idea

He set out to weave the Acropolis
Having never been to Greece,
His mind was not at rest

The days passed and the cocoon was done
“A small token of appreciation” he said in reverence
His mates all the more content

Their dues were paid to History
