Treasure Island

A Butterfly


She doesn't know about truth -
She never heard of lies
She is a butterfly
Her wings are fireproof

But in the night she cries
And flies out to the roof
To all the butterflies
To say she doesn't see a sooth

And then prepares to die
Wont wake up the next day
For all the butterflies
Who yet haven't passed away

Forever you may say she cried
But she lived only for one day
One day of life, one day to die
One day can bring a change, don't waste your time, go live and play.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
