A caterpillar's tale

 

Today I am a caterpillar, I am knobbly and green,
I cut that path through the leaf behind me, it shows you where I've been.
I crawl slowly on my belly and I am rubbery like jelly,
And if I should slip from this here cabbage, I might end up somewhere smelly.
 
But soon I will go through changes, that you would not believe,

We Visited A Rainbow

WE VISITED A RAINBOW

Every colour said hello

except for gloomy grey.

 

We visited a rainbow,

Four Leaf Clover

Scaled next doors fence, then over ours
with a fishing net and two jam jars
