A lonely butterfly


I’m walking down the shore under the sunny sky
Lost in thoughts about butterflies

Dancing among the yellow – green trees

Gracefully and quietly

I spot them everywhere round my mind
Around the corners, upstairs in the basement
Surrounding me like a sea of colors


I wake up…


I am back at the beach
Leaning against a tree
The sky covered by clouds in every shape and form
But there I spot it
Dancing on the grass covered slope


A lopsided smile
A quiet laughter
A lonely butterfly

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
