"Gecko, gecko, I love you.
Why do not you come near to me?"
Little gecko made no answer,
But crept along the wall.
"Gecko, gecko, gecko gecko
Why do not you answer me?"
The gecko still made no answer
But went under the door.
Then she went out and caught him, and said,
"gecko, gecko, I love you."
Pray, why do you not answer me?
Finally the gecko said,
"I'm scared of humans."
In a very little squeaky voice.
She laughed to hear him and she said,
"No need to be scared of me.
I love little geckos, and I do not catch them to be mean to them,
And I love them so much.
Gecko, gecko, will you come
And live upon my balcony?
In the night I see some geckos roam,
and get upon the wall."
By and by the gecko said,
"Well, yes, but do you have any food for me?"
"No, I don't," she said. "But I will love you."
The gecko's face frowned, and he ran away.
She laughed, and ran after him,
And put a box on top of him.
And he tried to climb up to a small open doorway.
All of a sudden, she shut it and said,
"gecko, gecko, I love you.
Pray, why do not you laugh at me?
I thought you laughed at me when I try to catch you.
And I am very sad when I don't.
Pray why do not you laugh at me?"
"But," said the gecko, "I thought that you didn't like me.
So I don't laugh at you. I'm scared of you."
She laughed again and said,
"no, my little gecko. I do not hate you."
The gecko said, "very well, I will come and live with you on your balcony."
She smiled very happily and said,
"thank you, little gecko. Thank you, thank you."

You wave in the meadow so gracefully and well.
I love you so much. Your beauty is the day.
Shall I take some of you for my mother?
Or shall I leave you to swing in the meadow?
I know not who shall breed you,
But I do know where you came from.
You came from the skies above.
Goodbye, my dear flowers. The winter has come.
It is time for you to fade. But then come again.
It is like when we die, and we come up again.
Except it’s different with you. You fade again.
I love you in my heart.
You are beautiful and graceful
As you wave in the meadow of your birth.
There is a little bug. He is kind of like a ladybug, except he is an oval. He seems very shy. His legs have tiny little spines on them, but of course they don’t hurt you because he’s just a teeny little scared bug. He has white and brown antennae. The front half of his body is black. The back part of his body is red, with three little black dots. On his front part is a teeny, weeny, hardly seen line, to make out his face. Mama was the first one who saw him, and she called me over. He was so cute we decided to describe him to you. He seemed scared at first, and he kept going under things, where he kept buggling and scrabbling.
