I Saw a Little Ladybug

I saw a little ladybug flying in the air
But when I went to catch her, 2 bugs were there!
Two little ladybugs flew up a tree
I tiptoed very quietly and then I saw 3!
Three little lady bugs…I looked for one more,
I saw one sitting on the ground, that made 4.
Four little lady bugs, all red and black.
I clapped my hands and shouted…and they all flew back.

I saw a ladybug fly through the air,
But when I tried to catch her,
She wasn't there!
She was so pretty, red and black-
I waved goodbye as she flew back!
