I am a caterpillar, I’m over hear on this green leaf. Please don’t come too close, I’m hiding from the bees.

I’ve camouflaged myself, so no one will disturb me, because all the other insects really terrify me.

I’m going to wrap myself into a warm cocoon, where I can safely sleep past the coming noon.

One day I hope to wake , but sadly I may not and I’ll remain here, where I will just rot.

If I do emerge a caterpillar I will no longer be. A beautiful big bright butterfly is now what you will see.

Instead of hiding here on this large green leaf, I will fly high, glorious and free.
