The Dance of the Caterpillars
A Dança das lagartas

Dance Cover

Translated by
Fernanda Ferreira Rigoni

In the fall, when the moon is just right….
No outono, quando a lua está simplesmente perfeita...

The deep throated croak of the toads goes “boom – boom - boom.”
O coaxar profundo dos sapos faz “bum-bum-bum”.

A sound, like that of a fiddle, drifts through the air… when the crickets rub their wings together.
Quando os grilos esfregam suas asas uma na outra... um som, como de um violino, voa pelo ar.

Then the frogs begin to sing, ever so sweetly.
As rãs então começam a cantar, como sempre, tão docemente.

Enchanted by the music and led by fairies ….
Encantadas pela música e guiadas pelas fadas...

The caterpillars gather in the garden, among the flowers and gnomes.
As lagartas se reúnem no jardim entre as flores e os gnomos.

And there, they begin to dance. They wiggle and shake as fairies fly above them.
E lá, elas começam a dançar. Elas se mexem e balançam enquanto as fadas voam acima delas.
