Cocooning Caterpillar
By David P Carroll

Cocooned away
In the old oak
Tree today
Lives a
Little Caterpillar
Sleeping
Away
hiding herself
in a Cocooned​ way
In her own back yard
hoping to keep
The virus
At Bay
Lives this
Little Caterpillar
Cocooning her
Life away…

Many thanks to David for sharing this poem with us!

Stay safe everybody,

Mama Lisa
