To live again a butterfly

"The Caterpillar"
by Christina Rossetti

Brown and furry,
Caterpillar in a hurry
Take your walk
By 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.


Guest post by Mark and Rachel, who can recite this poem in unison (and probably while standing on their heads, but we haven't tried that yet). They are visiting me today and wanted to see how this blog thing worked.
