(TheButterfly flies in the garden.  The Cricket sings near the Butterfly.  The Butterfly approaches the Cricket)



BUTTERFLY: There’s nothing better in the world than being a beautiful butterfly… just like me.



CRICKET:  I’m happy, even if I can’t fly like you do.



BUTTERFLY: Oh, poor you!.  All you can do is sing and jump.  How boring must be your life.



(The Butterfly flies away from the cricket.  The cricket keeps singing.  Robbie and Hellen enter.  Robbie carries a butterfly net and Hellen  carries a ball.  Robbie leaves the net on the floor and they start to play with the ball.  They see the Butterfly flying and leave the ball on the floor.  Robbie takes the butterfly net.  The Cricket stops singing and watches the scene)
