The Butterfly Whisperer

As we wander the meadow we disappear into the sun-lapped fields. There's a scent in the air so sweet and clear and plenty of flowery yields. Listen for the sound of Spring's delights and welcome back each creature. On outstretched arms butterfly alights; we admire each colorful feature. Slowly it flits and flies away only to widen it's wings. Back it comes to flutter and sway; In the distance a hummingbird sings. There's a scent in the air so sweet and clear like the nectar in each flower. Sunshine and new life brings us cheer; Spring delights in it's power. Butterflies are wandering free; landing on outstretched arms. They're a beautiful sight to see we whisper to their charms. As we wander the meadow we disappear into the arms of April and May. Singing out so sweet and clear we glory in each longer day.

I just love the title of this one. It goes so well with the pretty picture you have created. Is it an entry for the spring contest perhaps?
