Fuzzy Caterpillar by Eilie Poulsson

Fuzzy Caterpillar
by Eilie Poulsson

Fuzzy little caterpillar,
Crawling, crawling on the ground!
Fuzzy little caterpillar,
Nowhere, nowhere to be found,
Tho' we've looked and looked and hunted
Everywhere around!

When the little caterpillar
Found his furry coat too tight,
Then a snug cocoon he made him
Spun of silk so soft and light;
Rolled himself away within it—
Slept there day and night.

See how this cocoon is stirring!
Now a little head we spy—
What! is this our caterpillar
Spreading gorgeous wings to dry?
Soon the free and happy creature
Flutters gaily by.
