I wish I were a butterfly,
Beautiful and light.
I would flit from flower to flower,
And get drunk on pollen, long ere night.

I wish I were a butterfly,
With wings so thin and delicate.
Startling blue and black,
Or maybe yellow and red.

I wish I were a butterfly,
With nothing more to do
Than flutter here and yonder,
And make old ladies coo.

I wish I were a butterfly,
I’d air my wings in the sun.
And at the end of the day,
Find a safe place to call home.

I wish I were a butterfly,
I would fly high above the flowers.
Spotting the best, and get a ways,
Just in case the children spot me.

Yes, I wish I were a butterfly,
Carefree and content.
To fly here and there, and everywhere
Getting drunk on the flowers scent.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
