Blue Bottle Buzz Like a whirlwind of noise It fuzzes, tumbling and bumbling. Like an overfed dot it stops Buzzing, fat and fumbling. Like a crackling radio It continues its sound, Blue bottle as loud as a band Humming as you dance around. By K. Broad
Fly of Fire Firefly, Like a burning torch, Sparkling Like coloured lights, In dark, Night it shines, As the North star, glowing brighter. Firefly, Like a flickering flame, Burning Like orbs of fire, In blackness, It shimmers, as embers, floating higher. by K. Broad
Dragonfly As elegant as the sunshine, over the pond like a dream, Wings like blue sapphires, like moonstone in the breeze, As graceful as the dancer, over the reeds like a beam, Hovers like a humming bird, like scent in flowered trees. As beautiful as the twilight, over the lilies so new, As dazzling as the water, on pebbles like a jewel, Flies like a morning song, like grasses fresh with dew, Landing like a breath of wind, over the air so cool. By K. Broad

Spider, Spider! Close your eyes and think of a spider. Your spider might be a money spider, small and lucky. Your spider might be a jungle spider, huge and deadly. Your spider may be red and stripy, with a painful bite. Your spider may be a harvest spider, hiding in fright! By K. Broad
Spider, Spider! Spider, spider in the dead of night, Creeping silently ready to fight. As black as coal with eyes of steel, Moving closer to catch his meal. Spider, spider a warrior stare, Shadow floorboards hiding there. As dark as night and nearer still, The spiders is web ready to kill! By Mrs. K. Broad
