ladybugs & little girls

little girls walk
stomp, stomp, stomp
through the tall green grass

little girls freeze
still, still, still
in the tall green grass
a red ladybug

ladybugs climb
up, up, up
the tall green grass
where little girls play

little girls reach
slow, slow, slow
catching red ladybugs
in the tall green grass

little girls wish
bright secret dreams
skipping together
in the tall green grass

little girls and lady bugs
free, free, free
fly away home
while the sun sets gold

*The photo is of one of the ladybugs we brought home last night to live in the backyard. My daughter discovered them on a walk on the bayou with her cousins at Easter.
