Flying high

 Beautiful butterfly,  float on
with beauty of your colors
as you fly so high up in the sky
Then you visit the garden's flowers

Beautiful butterfly,  wondrous sight
You brighten the summer days
up in the sky as you fly so high
Time's short,  and I know you cannot stay

Beautiful butterfly come again
When the snowflakes are all gone
as you fly so high up in the sky
You will dance once more at Springtime's  dawn

Beautiful butterfly, you have returned
As the flowers once more bloom
Up in the sky as you fly so high
And  a lilac bride awaits her groom

    Congratulations on your win with this delightful poem, Joseph. The rhyming scheme (lines 2 & 4) were not always obvious. Butterflies tend to lighten the mood and we know that spring is eminent.:-) Best wishes, Suzette
