My happy butterflies

My happy butterflies

Bright yellow wings, scalloped in velvety back, are fluttering 
In the mellow morning air,
Dancing in happy search of nectar on a purple, 
sweet scented clover bud.
Joined by his mate, equally wondersome decorated.
They greet each other in a joyful dance.

“Follow me, I know of a fragrant, red butterfly weed blossom
over here-- come on!”
“Oh yes, I like this! Now come and  taste this gorgeous orange-
 painted Zinnia.”
“Why, thank you, it’s quite good, I like it too!”

A goldfinch is clinging to a swaying milkweed, 
but it does not bother the frolicking couple,
It takes to the air, swooping  further down the colorful meadow,
While my happy Swallowtails found a rain puddle.
“Ah, this is just what we need , a cool drink,”
 they smile.
