The Butterfly Song

When the butterflies sing the angels cry A sound so pure the flowers will sigh The butterfly song is the beginning of spring It happens each year when the butterflies sing Though it's a voice not heard by human ears The evidence is seen through the angel's tears Accepted by all as the evening rain Because a butterfly song is hard to explain The music is made by the the butterfly's wings But only nature itself hears the song it sings It causes the flowers and the trees to sprout And the birds and the bees to dance about When a flower is seen it won't be long 'Til spring is born with a butterfly song So listen close when Winter calls Spring And you might just hear a butterfly sing When the butterflies sing the angels cry A sound so pure the flowers will sigh The butterfly song is the beginning of spring It happens each year when the butterflies sing
