"The Caterpillar"
by Christina G. Rossetti

Brown and furry caterpillar in a hurry;
Take your walk to the shady leaf or stalk.
May no toad spy you,
May the little birds pass you by;

Spin and die, to live again a butterfly.

"Caterpillars"
by Aileen Fisher

What do caterpillars do?
Nothing much but chew and chew.
What do caterpillars know?
Nothing much but how to grow.
They just eat what by and by
Will make them be a butterfly,
But that is more than I can do,
However much I chew and chew
.
