A Child’s Butterfly Poem

Monarch pupa

A monarch pupa showing wings within the pupa which is translucent now.

Deanna S. won 3rd place for her butterfly poem.  The writers contest was hosted by the Indianhead Writers Group of Shell Lake, Wisconsin.  The event took place at Spooner Agricultural Research Station in Spooner, Wisconsin, on October 19, 2009

I love butterflies… because of their color.  Some are purple, some have black and orange.  One day I saw a butterfly hatching out of a cocoon.  The cocoon cracked and the butterfly’s wings were dripping brown liquid… and then it stretched its wings.  Two hours later it flew away.
