Butterfly Version 2 - Poem by Min Chan

Skinny as you can be
Wiggle down from the tree
Food everywhere as far as you can see
Sweet peas, honeysuckle, sugary freebies

Nibble, nibble, nibble as fast as you can be
Leaves, flowers, stems it’s all munchies
A belly fill with sweet bliss
As you waddle back up to the tree

Fattening up as much as you can be
Hanging from the bark of a tree
Upside down is the world you see
Push in those legs and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze

Twisting and pulling as tightly as you can be
Making a shell stronger than a swam of bees
Go to sleep for a month or two
Wake up fresh and glad to break free

Four wings, six legs and as pretty as you can be
Go ahead and fly free
With rainbow colors to find your mate
As you flicker away in a cheerful glee
