My Lady Bug

Hi there little lady bug,
whatcha†doing on my arm?
Please donít fly away.
I wonít bring you any harm.

Iím glad†I have you with me.
I was feeling all alone.
Somehow I got me turned around.
I donít know my way back home.

I only took a little walk
behind a pretty butterfly,
but now Iím really scared and lost
and I think Iím going to cry.


Stay†with me†little lady bug,
please donít fly away,
and when my mommy finds me,
come home with me and stay.

Iíll let you share my bedroom
and when itís dark at night,
Mommy leaves the lamp on
(monsters hate it when itís light).

Hey, that sounds like Mommy!
It is! Sheís calling me!
Now you'll get to meet her.
Youíll like her, wait and see.

Lady bug, why are†you leaving?
I'll bet you're†going†home too.
Thank you for being lost with me!
Bye lady bug --†I love you.

Burl Ives came to mind reading this - The Ugly Bug Ball. Why does my mind insist that when I read poems that it open up my large repository of memories that contains even a snippet of Burl Ives?
Because in this instance, through reading The Lady Bug, it reminded me of my time as an infant at school listening to The Ugly Bug Ball on a big wireless matrixed to the class wall. I did not know that it was Burl Ives but thought it was Miss Campbell's, and that she somehow had transferred her voice into this big box. Never occured to me that it was a man's voice. Dope!
I enjoyed reading this delightful interaction between a ladybird and its 'guardian'. I like the image too, the only colour belonging to the ladybird.
Iíll let you share my bedroom
and when itís dark at night,
Mommy leaves the lamp on
(monsters hate it when itís light).

The creature was not the only one who left the lamp on at night to keep monsters away. Ah, such memories. Now I will have to struggle to rid the Burl Ives song playing at volume in my head.

LOLOL.....The winter my daughter was two, we had lady bugs all over our living room. She would take them one at a time,and put them in a 2" miniture baby buggy and on her hands and knees push it around the house! Talking to them the whole time. She named her favorite Dotty Lasher, I have no idea where she got that idea from. But Dotty was handled alot! And.....oh sad sad sad.......she broke! LOL ohhhhh the look on my baby's face, when whe had a smooshed lady bug in her hand.....bewildred and scared. But I explained that the bugs were fragile, she could still play with them, but not to handle them so much......just put them into her little buggy, and tour the hallway. This worked......she was happy....

A few yrs later, she won a fish and a girl scout fair.......oh boy......
the fish........well, he was hugged to death! LOL

but thats another story!

We have always had dogs in our home, but I guess the novely of something handsized and cheerful held too much allure!

ty for this poem..........

brought back memories and a crazy ramble from me........lol

Awwwwwwwww:). This is p e r f e c t, CJ. I used to work with children {was a therapist}, and sometimes wrote for them, and this poem is exactly the kind of thing they crave. Full of concrete images, fun to read and listen to, and. . .what child doesn't like
ladybugs? Know I did. Still do! Rhyme is impeccable, I say
that? Not nearly as easy as it looks to write for children. Color me WOWed ! 'Pea' <3

CJ,

Only you can express the ability of a child to have a conversation with a ladybug. I guess growing up is losing that ability. Just call me a kid then. Your writing so much reminds me of Mo, and I love you for that.
