Butterfly > Caterpillar Theme Poems

By Teachers.Net Community

Fuzzy Little Caterpillar(Author unknown)

Fuzzy little caterpillar

Crawling, crawling on the ground.

Fuzzy little caterpillar

Nowhere to be found,

Though we’ve looked and looked

And hunted everywhere around!


The Caterpillar (Christina Rosetti)

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 by you;
Spin and die,
To live again a butterfly.


Magic (Margaret Hillert)

Creepy, crawly caterpillar

Searching for some lunch

Nibbles on a tasty leaf —

Munch, munch, munch.

Curls into a tight cocoon,

Warm as anything.

Then turns into a butterfly

And flutters into spring.


Butterfly (Author unknown)

Bright colored butterfly,

Looking for some honey,

Spread your wings and fly away,

While it is sunny.
