Butterfly, butterfly

Butterfly, butterfly you colorful princess of the summer sky.
We are delighted by your visit in your brightly colored dress.
We view with delight your erratic flight as you come fluttering by.
You make your entrance floating along on some gentle summer breeze.
Going where the breeze goes, tis truly a nomadic life for thee.
Stopping only to sample a blossom’s sweet nectar then you are on your way.
But that same breeze that brought you here causes me to sneeze
And sneeze and sneeze.

    A sweet and wonderful write about one of the prettiest insects. Colorful and free. The imagery and description in every line takes the reader on a fantastic journey with this butterfly. Nice job thanks for the insightful and nice comment on my Hero Of My Heart poem.

    Ahhh yes so beautiful an insect when adorned with their beautiful dress, and a reminder the allergies are about to kick in.
