Peanuts

I was at the park

and

enjoying my Sun-day

afternoon,

when a ladybug suddenly

landed on my hand.

***

So I said to it

***

“Ladybug, ladybug,

fly away home,

your house is on fire

and your children

are gone.”

***

Then I 

blew on the ladybug,

and off it flew.

***

But then

I began to wonder

if I hadn’t

needlessly

worried it.

***

“I’m sure your kids are fine!” I yelled after it.
