What beauty

Itty bitty ladybug

How cute you really are

With your brightly coloured body

And tiny wings that take you far

~~~~~~~~~~

Simply pure and precious

A highlight in my day

Bless me with your beauty

Please don't fly away

~~~~~~~~~~

I shall place you on this flower

A fitting tiny home

For an itty bitty ladybug

Free to live and roam

      Thanks teaches 12345, I really love lady bugs they are so cute and pretty.

      One of the best things in nature I believe, although a gardener may not agree, lol.

      Thanks for reading my hub.

      I like lady bugs with their cute design. Your poem matches the whimsical features and life of this little bug.

      Thankyou RTalloni, I like to keep things short and sweet at times. I write for children as well, sometimes my writing takes that direction. :)

      Thanks for the comment.

      Hi WillStarr - I loved playing with ladybug's, when I was a child. That is a great memory, I did not know they were good at gardening as well lol.

      Cheers skellie :)

      Cute, beautiful, adorable and carnivorous! My dad used to buy them to kill pests in his garden. They are so good at it that in a few days the pests are all gone...and so are the ladybugs!

      I live in Delaware and our state insect is the ladybug. There is a Lady Bug Store in Milford, DE, and an annual Lady Bug festival. Enjoyed your sweet poem about this beautiful bug.
