Butterfly Poetry

Question 4

Why did the poet say the caterpillar is like soft sculpture?

It is pleasing
It is still
It is like a stone statue
It is like a chrysalis

Review Passage

The little caterpillar creeps,
Through my garden like a soft sculpture.
Nibbling here, nibbling there,
Munching on leaves everywhere,
Eating and growing.

Now in the chrysalis it sleeps,
After weaving a silken home.
Changing here, changing there,
Being transformed within its lair,
Created anew.

A beautiful butterfly now peeps,
From its silken home to the skies.
Flying here, flying there,
Lighting on flowers everywhere,
Delighting me.
