Under the door,
on the rug,
a letter came in.

The fancy ladybug
read it without fear.

And what a question
from the waggish cricket!

“Sweet ladybug,
would you like to be
my bride?
We shall live
wherever there is peace,
and a lot of love
we will have.”

She suddenly blushed
and called her girlfriends,
a few little stars,
and asked all of them
to hug one another
up in the bright sky
to write a big
“Yes.”
