The Ladybug Queen
There's a ladybug queen
who lives in a garden of roses,
of the flowers she takes special care;
a gown of petals and leaves she wears
from lovely roses grown there.
With gesture and expression so serene,
she is composed
of gentle concern for all creation;
she smiles at all the animals
living by a simple creed
to help those who are in need...
With her lovely
song she charms
and protects all from harm.
She plants the seed
as the desire to do a kind deed
to all those who come.
With her healing touch,
hate and fear disappear
without a trace...
in this magical place.
Enveloped in this aura of beauty
as they breathe in this
those that are in despair
are born anew
in the light
of her care;
Keener are their senses,
with greater clarity is their vision-
they now see with more
accuracy than they ever had before,
as those who once had little regard for other life...
are newly transformed.
They leave now,
as they embrace all creatures
great and small,
with a greater sense of humanity
and a kinder disposition toward all.
