Inchworm by Bunny Clarke

Did you ever wonder where the term Inchworm came from and why kids like them so much? According to wikipedia, the “Inchworm” song originally performed by Danny Kaye in the 1952 film Hans Christian Andersen. It was written by Frank Loesser. In the film, a children’s chorus sings the “arithmetic” section over and over inside a small classroom, dolefully and by rote, while Andersen, listening just outside, gazes at an inchworm crawling on the flowers and sings the main section of the song.

    I have to say, this is the first time I’ve heard of the Inchworm Bunny, but it’s a very immediately alluring title. I think I’ve probably seen this film before, although I can’t remember it very well. I think that the scene you’ve evoked here, along with the image and title creates a very lucid surreal ambience. Wonderful work Bunny.

  • It is in the the movie with Danny Kaye about Hans Christian Anderson. The song was a counting song and was used for a while in schools too.I may have to watch the movie again myself. I always enjoyed Danny Kaye. Thank you. :o)

    I do remember Danny Kaye very well Bunny, as well as all of the old school pioneers of the talkies; I was a great one for movies at one time. It’s just that although I can clearly see him in my minds eye, and probably in Hans Christian Anderson, I can’t remember the first thing about the film, like most of the movies I haven’t seen for many years. There’s a few books I’ve read that I can’t remember the first thing about either! Either way, the image you evoked with your words was pleasant enough. (I find it tiring watching movies nowadays) I also noticed how the elements of geometry and life itself were incorporated into your image, reminiscent of the song you mentioned. Great work Bunny.

  • Thank you very much. I’m glad you enjoyed this. :o) My works seems to get your mind racing into all kinds of tangents. Fascinating. :o)

    I got a picture in my mind of Danny Kyle singing in the garden, only that was from your words; I couldn’t have said that I was remembering the film. Best Wishes Bunny.

  • Well said. It was a long time ago since I have seen it myself. :o)
