The ladybug and the rose


I’m a small rose
still a bud
not yet ready to bloom

oh, some plant-lice
are on my stem
then on my bud!

they suck my sap
to make their honeydew
and the ants protect them

Sweet Ladybug,
Help me, help me,
Sweet Ladybug!

Be quiet, don’t worry
Small rose bud
I’m flying to you

I’ll get rid of
these gluttonous plant-lice
in ten morsels.

Thank you Ladybug
I feel much better
perfumed and beautiful.
