Itty Bitty Ladybug

Updated on December 23, 2016

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.

      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.
