The Cabbage White

In Summer and Fall on every sunny day
They fly in their undulating zig zagging way
The butterflies known to many as the cabbage white
Along with their brown cousins a familiar sight
In parks, gardens and fields and across roadways they do fly
They are Nature's dancers of the Summer sky
They have a huge range since they live far and wide
In towns and in villages and in the countryside
They are known as cabbage white since on cabbage leaves their eggs they prefer to lay
In Nature too it is each to their own as some do like to say
For to be quite distinctive is their claim to flying insect fame
Even most of those not interested in Nature do know them by name
In their brief lives they dance above the bushes and flowers
And hide under leaves from the thundery showers.
