Lady The Bug

One sunny afternoon Lady Luck came my way,
She was bright red and spotted
as I helped her that day.
Her paper wings closing as she landed on me,
I held her up loosely for others to see.
The wind picked up and started to blow,
and I knew Lady Luck would soon have to go.
So I cried; "Lady Bug, Lady Bug, fly away home!"
She opened her wings and left me standing alone.
It wasn't long that I started to see,
millions of Lady Bugs smiling at me.
