What’s This I See? It’s Not A Bee!

What’s This I See? It’s Not a Bee!


What’s this I see?
It’s not a bee!
It skims the blossoms gracefully
and flies at sleepy summer’s pace
to each up-lifted flower’s face.

Oh ladybug I wish you joy
as you complete your garden chores.
I’d like to put aside my work
and join you in the out-of-doors!

    Oh I love this poem!! I first read it on the tissue box next to my bed and have been reciting it ever since. I forgot some of the words until I found it here. Thanks so much for posting this joyful poem!

    oh what a pretty poem! I so love ladybugs, they look so cute and are such fierce garden helpers in the fight against pests 🙂
