I wonder why they call them bugs?
It does so bother me
For many times I’ve taken time
To take the time to see.
There’s beauty in a butterfly
Lightening  bugs amuse
Determinations in the ant
Caterpillars confuse
Bees are busy all the time
Lady bugs bring good luck
Crickets are the noisy ones
And worms are just plain yuck.

Yet, do we not have beauty?
can we not amuse?
Have we not determination
& do we not confuse?
Are we not busy all the time
To bring about good luck?
Do we not have our noisy ones
And those that’s just plain Yuck?

So as for those who scream and say
“Get that bug away from me”
I think it’s time you took the time
To take the time to see….

  1. Hi Concetta, I’ve asked myself the very same thing about weeds!

  2. This is such a beautiful poem. I love it! If we could only see the beauty that surround us, and that every thing is related.

  3. I’m not an insect person, but this poem is clever. I do love butterflies though and dragonflies for some reason are my favorite 🙂 I’m amazed at how you come up with a poem a day…I wish I could do that!

  4. I love this poem! Oh, that we would “take the time to see” the world around us. Thanks for this inspiring and upbeat poem xx
