Natalie - Crawl low in smoke

Natalie awoke one morning
To the smell of smoke.
She tried to take a breath of air;
Instead, she almost choked.

She remembered what she learned at school-
In smoke crawl very low.
Quickly she slid out of bed,
Crawling she did go.

Natalie followed the wall to the door
And felt if it was hot.
She opened it up only when
She knew that it was not.

Under the blanket of smoke she crawled,
Breathing the cleanest air.
She held her breath when she could,
As smoke was everywhere.

Natalie safely crawled outside
To join her family there.
Crawl low in smoke is the thing to do
In fire - to take care.
