This is the woolly bear that eats…

This is the woolly bear that eats the sedum that lives in the garden that lies at the side of the house.

This is the golden woolly bear that eats the green sedum that lives in the small garden that lies at the north side of the house.

This is the bunch of woolly bears and golden woolly bears that feast on the green sedum leaves that live in the small, window garden that lies at the cool, north side of the house (How many caterpillars? How many nibbled leaves can you see?)

This is the jar for the golden and woolly bears that eat the green sedum leaves that live in the small, window garden at the cool, north side of  the house.

This is the  soft, golden cocoon that is spun by the golden woolly bear that is now in the glass jar with the silver-green sedum leaves that come from the small, window garden at the cool, north side of  the house.

This is the back of the small, white moth that comes from the golden cocoon after its two weeks in the glass jar with the green sedum leaves that come from the small, window garden at the cool, north side of  the house.

This is the front of the small, white moth that comes from the fuzzy cocoon after its two weeks in the glass jar with the green sedum leaves that come from the small, window garden at the cool, north side of  the house.

And this is the sedum that lives in the garden that lies at the north side of the house – that the moth’s eggs may hatch in so that woolly bear caterpillars can devour the leaves once again…

With thanks to the writer of the the Nursery Rhyme and cumulative story, This is the House that Jack Built.
