When strolling through the garden if you

When strolling through the garden,
If you should chance to see
A ladybug out walking,
Please say "hi" for me!
For ladybugs are good bugs,
They help the garden grow
They will bring you good luck,
So always say "hello!"

Oh ladybug, I wish you joy
As you complete your garden chores.
I’d like to put aside my work
And join you in the out-of-doors!

They crawl out from warm mulch just

They crawl out from warm mulch, just after snow,
In hidings from tunnels row after row;
They rest among dew drops and fly out to bring
Their red spots of colors to gardens of spring.

A small speckled visitor wearing a crimson

A small speckled visitor
Wearing a crimson cape
Brighter than a cherry
Smaller than a grape
A polka-dotted someone
Walking on my wall
A black-hooded lady
In a scarlet shawl.
