Wrapped in those leaves,
Did anyone know?
Sleeping was I
All alone,
Did she tighten me?
I gasped aloud
To show my strength,
Wrecked the leaves
Scattered them,
CATERPILLAR as they screamed
Crawled all along,
Did my name had a bearing
Metamorphosed to Chrysalis,
Waited for the day to be winged,
Small scale of wings
Grown into a beauty,
Buttered with various colours
Tinged with scattered designs
BUTTERFLY as they screamed,
Flying was my dream
Flapping my wings,
Hovered around her in whee,
She smiled sprinkling the mist.
