We start looking for butterflies, Mrs. Warden and I,
When there aren't any snowflakes in the sky
We keep an eye on our sight
Everyday and every night.
We look for any eggs to appear
And hope they lay them very near.
We look for any spiders and ants
That happen to be on our plants.
We catch big caterpillars that we see
and watch them for two weeks or three.
Once they change into butterflies
We let them go in the sky.
