Butterfly


butterflies, butterflies,
beautiful butterflies
wings spread out
for everyone to see

the colors of a rainbow
red to violet, violet to red
the patterns of a rainbow
sea to shore, shore to sea

i’m going to catch my butterfly
soaring through the stars
stars shining bright
as the sun shines

the wings of faith
fluttering across the sky
the wings of hope
helping with every hand


i’m going to catch my butterfly
soaring through the stars
stars shining bright
as the sun shines

the clouds of emptiness
Suffering with every silence
the clouds of dead air
just butterflies, shining the night

i’m going to catch my butterfly
soaring through the stars
stars shining bright
as the sun shines

butterflies,
beautiful butterflies

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
