I collect all kinds of insects,
It’s something that I like to do.
I stick them to a piece of cardboard
With pins and little dabs of glue.

I know an arachnid’s not an insect
But I have a special spider.
It’s the one that scared Miss Muffet
When it came and sat beside her.

I have teeny tiny ants
And great big bumblebees.
I catch bugs from off the ground
And in the very tops of trees.

I chase butterflies through meadows
And catch them in big floppy nets.
I put them in glass jars and boxes
And some I like to keep as pets.

Today when I was out collecting
Something came I didn’t see;
Grabbed me with big hairy fingers,
I think that it collected me!
