                                   Hurt No Living Thing
                                        Christina Rossetti

Hurt no living thing,
Ladybird nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper, so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat,
No beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep.

Booth, David. Voices on the Wind: Poems for All Seasons. New York: Morrow Junior Books, 1990.
