All My Silkworms


All my silkworms love to chew
The juicy mulberry leaves I give them
Day by day they grow a little bigger
As they crawl around their
Plastic box I put them in
So that I can watch them grow
Weave and spin their silk cocoons
Now I cannot see them

Twenty days have passed and still
I have not seen my sleepy silkworms
Maybe they have gone forever
Trapped inside their silk cocoons but
Wait there’s something moving now
Fluttering its tiny wings
Standing still on tiny legs
Little moth don’t fly away
