Insects All Around

Whether looking in the air or on the ground,
It always seems that insects are around.
Even though I wouldn't want one as a pet,
Let's not do away with them all just yet.

Some insects are helpful to you and me,
Like the homey made by a little ol' bee.
Others are pretty just flying in the air,
Like a butterfly floating without a care.

When the web of a spider is spun just so,
You know there is a fly about to go
And when there is a dragonfly darting along,
The mosquitoes around are singing their last song.

While a fire ant is very is very dangerous to touch,
It'll take of termites, ticks and such.
When bad bugs will not let vegetable grow,
The ladybug is a very good insect to know.

Even though insects are not pretty to see,
Many are helpful to you and me.
It's still not safe to reach down and touch,
But to the helpful bugs-thank you very much!

Boy Ladybug

 

A Ladybug wife left for work one day
and said to her husband;
"Now while I'm away,
Take care of the house
and please sweep the floor,
And don't let the baby bugs
crawl out the door!"

 

So he dusted and cleaned,
and he vacuumed the rug;
He fed all the baby bugs
and gave them a hug.
When he finally finished,
he said with a shrug -
"It's hard work, being a Boy Ladybug!"

Five little ladybugs
 
Five little ladybugs sitting in a tree.
The first one said,
"I’m glad I’m me."
The second one said,
"I feel great too."
The third one said,
"How about you?"
The fourth one said,
"It’s time to fly away."
The fifth one said,
"We’ll talk another day"

Five Little Ladybugs

Five little ladybugs climbing up a door
One flew away and then there were four

Four little ladybugs sitting on a tree
One flew away and then there were three

Three little ladybugs landed on a shoe
One flew away and then there were two

Two little ladybugs looking for some fun
One flew away and then there was one

One little ladybug sitting in the sun
She flew away and then there were none!

Five Little Ladybugs
 
Five little ladybugs climbing on some plants,
Eating the aphids, but not the ants.
The first one said,
"Save some aphids for me."
The second one said,
"They're as tasty as can be."
The third one said,
"Oh they're almost gone."
The fourth one said,
"Then we'd better move on."
The fifth one said,
"Come on, let's fly!"
So they opened up their wings
and they flew through the sky.

If I Were A Ladybug

"If I were a Ladybug
I'd be orange and black
I'd be oval in shape

And have spots on my back

I'd look at the flowers
And crawl up the plants
And I'd have for my neighbours

Some beetles and ants!"

Ladybug
 
The ladybug's a beetle.
It's shaped like a pea.
Its colour is a bright red
With lots of spots to see.
 
Although the name is "ladybug",
Some ladybugs are "men"
So why don't we say "gentleman bug"
Every now and then?

Lady Bug

I saw a little ladybug flying in the air,
But when I tried to catch her,
two bugs where there.
Two little ladybugs flew up in a tree.

I tiptoed very quietly,
and then I saw three.
Three little ladybugs,
I looked for one more.

I saw one sitting on the ground;
that made four.
Four little ladybugs-another one arrived.
I saw her sitting on a flower,
and that made five.

Five little ladybugs, all red and black-
I clapped my hands and shouted,
and they all flew back!

Lady The Bug

 

One sunny afternoon Lady Luck came my way,
She was bright red and spotted
as I helped her that day.
Her paper wings closing as she landed on me,
I held her up loosely for others to see.
The wind picked up and started to blow,
and I knew Lady Luck would soon have to go.
So I cried; "Lady Bug, Lady Bug, fly away home!"
She opened her wings and left me standing alone.
It wasn't long that I started to see,
millions of Lady Bugs smiling at me.

Ladybug Army

 

"Just after summer, I have seen
A marching army on our screen;
Their bright red armors marked with spots
Were speckled black in solid dots!

 

They crawled in clusters, then they flew
Across the green yard to the blue.
And I could tell, before my eyes
They were some creatures for their size!

 

Where did they go?  Where do they hide
Inside these days of Autumn tide?
Will they return when Robins sing
To join the colored days of Spring?"

Ladybug, Ladybug
 
Down in the hollow,
Not so far away
I saw some little Ladybugs
When I went to play.
 
Swinging in the Clover,
Up in the air
I wonder if the Ladybugs
Knew I was there?

Ladybug, Ladybug! 
 
It is a crimson Ladybug;
I wonder why the pet has come?

Perhaps it wants a little food
To carry with it to its home?
 
Oh!  It spreads its tiny wings!
Mother, see?  It flies away!

Ladybug, you're going home

But come again another day!

Fly Away Home
Nighttime is coming,

the sunshine has gone
Your family awaits,

no more to be said
It's time little Ladybugs

were tucked up in bed!

Little Buggy
 
In the window of the washroom,
At our school yesterday,
A little bug was crawling
In its little buggy way.

I whispered in its tiny ear
To not make any noise;
Because it was a Ladybug
And the washroom is for boys!

Little Red Ladybug

 

Little red ladybug sits on a leaf.
She sits on a leaf on a tree.
And as she sits on that little green leaf.
There are so many friends to see!
Little yellow bumblebees buzz by the leaf.
They buzz by the leaf on the tree.
And as they buzz by that little green leaf.
There are so many friends to see!

Miss Lady Bug

Little ladybug
Sweet little ladybug
Where are you going now?

You go to fly
While I must try
And turn away as you go.

But if you feel
You need to come back
Than this you must always know.

In my heart there's a place for you
It's red with black spots
It's a place you can stay
Where I will love you lots

But I know that I can't keep you
For there are lives you need to please,
So then you shall fly
To tend to others needs

It would be wrong to keep you here
And not let you go to live,
For you little bug, bless your heart
Have lots of love to give.

Never Hurt a Ladybug!

Ladybugs are in my yard
Just look at them devour
Those pesky aphids on the leaves
Of all my pretty flowers!

 

Never hurt a ladybug
We need them in the garden
Ladybugs help flowers grow
So we must give them pardon!

Oops!

In the window of the washroom
At our school yesterday,
A little bug was crawling
In its little bug way.

I whispered in its tiny ear
To not make any noise;
Because it was a ladybug
And that washroom was for boys!

Six Hungry Ladybugs

 

Six hungry ladybugs climbing up a tree,  
Six hungry ladybugs, can’t you see?

The first one ate just one leaf, soft and green.  
The second one ate two leaves, shiny and clean.

The third one ate three leaves, enough to fill her tummy.  
The fourth one ate four leaves, every one was yummy.

The fifth one ate five leaves, it took him all day long.  
The sixth one ate six leaves, and then the leaves were gone!

The Tiny Ladybug

When I was a child
Ladybugs would fly to me.
They would land on my arm
and whisper little secrets in my ear
of things I would become:
A kind man
.......gentle of mind.

A man of spirit
who could close great divides.

But I don't feel that big.
In fact, as I sit in the grass
and talk to you,
I feel like a tiny Ladybug
on someone else's arm......
And your ear is most important to me.
