Here's a little poem about a caterpillar and its cocoon. It nicely introduces another poem on the same subject...

The Cocoon

See the pretty brown cradle.
I found it on the apple tree.
A caterpillar made it.
A baby is asleep in the cradle.
The baby is a butterfly.
The cradle is a cocoon.
The butterfly will come out in the spring.
