Brown and Furry....

Caterpillar in a hurry;
Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk.

May no toad spy you,
May the little birds pass by you;
Spin and die,
To live again, a butterfly

The Caterpillar

by Christina Rosetti

This was the first poem Sophia memorized with First Language Lessons. I think it is so sweet, and she loves to say it.
We have been loving our caterpillar nature walks lately, as there have been hundreds of these Wolly Bears, on and around our trail this fall. Soon they will "spin and die to live again" as an Isabella Tiger moth.
