The day started out just like all days before, With the sun peeking over the trees. Dot let out a yawn as she stretched out her wings And went out for a ride on the breeze. She stopped on a leaf for a quick bite of breakfast And sipped on a sweet drop of dew, When off in the distance she heard a strange sound That was different from any she knew.

Now being the curious bug that she was, She had to go investigate, So she followed the sound right down to the ground, Where a bundle of rags had been placed. Dot landed softly on top of the bundle. Then all of a sudden it wiggled! She started to fly; then she peeked down inside And saw something that caused her to giggle!

She carefully climbed her way down to a spot Right between two almond-shaped eyes. “How cute is this?!” she said to herself. “What a fabulous little surprise!” Dot was so taken with this little creature That she never heard footsteps approaching. Suddenly she was scooped up with the bundle, Who was now causing quite a commotion.

The next thing she knew, they were bumping along In an old wooden basket on wheels. Dot was afraid so she hid in a wrinkle And did all she could not to squeal! When they finally stopped moving, Dot slowly crawled out To try to make an escape. She started to fly; then the little thing cried, As if saying, “Please don’t go away!”

They were in a small room with one little window That opened to Dot’s world outside, But she just couldn’t leave her new little friend, So she whispered, “I’ll stay right by your side.” And so it was there, in that moment of truth, That Dot’s lifetime promise was heard, ’Cause if you know anything about ladybugs, You know they always keep their word.
