Taking LadyBug for a Walk
Taking my ladybug for a Walk
Casually so to not arouse any suspicion.
Because the birds would be jealous
The crow would squawk his displeasure.
The grasshopper, who usually rode my fingers
Would be so miffed, he would stop speaking.
Every creature in the garden thought I loved them best.
Of course I loved them all, for they enjoyed my vegetables.
I would have never wanted to garden without them.
My ladybug began crawling up my finger, she was so happy!
Sh! I cautioned the wind as it rose higher and louder. Stop that!
If he woke up the grasshopper there would be heck to pay!
