Butterfly, Butterfly

Butterfly Butterfly flittering here
Fanciful member of lepidoptera
Airy and wispy to all you endear
Coming through winter springtime your era
Flying as far as even the Riviera

Oh Butterfly you of the pretty probiscus
Bright yellows and oranges enchanting are you
Nectar of flowers I hope not too viscous
As the winds of flight you do pursue
Exciting alluring you appear oh so new

Butterfly Butterfly flittering here
Thrills my soul to see you glide
My garden I grew so you could stay near
Nature's fine object of beautiful pride
May you not be the last butterfly I have eyed

April 13, 2013 Rick Zablocki

    God gave the butterfly such a short lifespan...I suppose He knew we couldn't stand such beauty for too long... Nice writing, Rick... Congrats... Jake

    Rick, I love this especially because I am a self-proclaimed butterfly. Love the serene beauty of the forever illusive butterfly

    I honestly can't remember the last time I've seen a butterfly (and I've never once seen a firefly)... this makes me wish they were more common where I live! I enjoyed reading this....
