The Fuzzy Wuzzy Caterpillar
Whatís inside this tiny egg
That no one can quite see?
Out pops a fuzzy caterpillar
As fat as he can be.
With rings of colors wrapped around,
He lives on leaves above the ground.
He eats and eats and will grow and grow.
What will he become?
Does anyone know?
One day while hanging from a tree,
He asks himself, ďWhatís happing to me?Ē
Iíve spun myself a silky new home.
No more on the leaves shall I roam.
Days pass and turn into weeks,
The creature inside the outside seeks.
The beautiful butterfly comes from inside.
Itís colorful wings no more to hide.
Itís flight is so graceful,
Itís beauty so unique.
Now this four-stage
Life cycle is complete.
