Where did the butterfly go? Near the garden was a pond. In the pond was a white lotus. Around it grew round leaves. They floated in the water. The butterfly sailed on a floating leaf. Sonu saw the butterfly. He ran to catch it. The butterfly flew to the rose bed. It sat on a red rose. “Now I can catch it!” said Sonu. He walked slowly and silently to catch the butterfly. He came closer, closer, and still closer, but then... Off flew the butterfly! Sonu could not see it at all. He looked everywhere. At last he saw the butterfly. There was a big spider's web in the peach tree. The butterfly was caught in the spider's web. It looked sad as it tried to escape. It fluttered its wings. It twisted and turned. But it could not escape. The spider’s web held it tight. Poor butterfly! In the middle of the web was a big spider. It looked hungry. It wanted to catch the butterfly. Closer and closer crawled the black spider. Before the hungry spider could grab it, Sonu ran and... he caught the butterfly! It was so pretty. It had brown spots on its yellow wings. Sonu loved the little butterfly. But it looked sad in Sonu’s hand. Sonu wanted it to be happy. “Go,” said Sonu, “Fly away!” He let the butterfly go. It sat on the red rose. It flew to the peach tree and then sailed on a lotus leaf. It flew merrily from flower to flower. Sonu watched it fly and fly. The butterfly flew all around Sonu’s garden....happy and free once again.

Does a balloon man visit your market? Let’s see what this
balloonmanbrings with him.
The Balloon Man
He always comes on market days
And holds balloons – a lovely bunch –
And in the market square he stays,
And never seems to think of lunch.
They're red and purple, blue and green,
And when it is a sunny day
The carts and people get between
You see them shining far away.
And some are big and some are small,
All tied together with a string.
And if there is a wind at all
They tug and tug like anything.
Some day perhaps he'll let them go
And we shall see them sailing high,
And stand and watch them from below —
They would look pretty in the sky!
Rose Fyleman
