the time is now
for the ladybirds flight
in the nest too long
she waves it goodbye
10 feet from the nest, she encounters a creek
with the sweetest fresh water she ever could keep
but theres creeks up and down this rickety road
theres exploring to do, places to go
as much as the creek wants to share all its fresh springs
with the ladybird that has not flexed all her wings

watch the ladybird swim, hear the ladybird sing
quench the ladybirds thirst and live life like a king

ladybird, go find you in these faraway lakes
drink from more waters, acquire your taste
true too that there could be a new ladybird
enjoying my drink on your final return
