The Caterpillar painting and poem by Douglas Florian


























The Caterpillar

The caterpillar's not a cat.
It's very small
And short and fat,
And with those beady little eyes
Will never win a beauty prize.
The caterpillar's brain is small-
It only knows to eat and crawl.
But for this creepy bug don't cry,
It will soon be a butterfly.
