Treasure Island

Tygrr Robertson

(January 19,1970 / Seattle Wa.)

Butterfly


I saw you first
on a summer's day
You fluttered by
without delay
To work to work
you had to be
Does she work
here with me?

I knew you were special
right away
Your love of life
eclipsed the day
Drawn to you
like a moth to a fire
Visions of you
brought me desire

I made my first move
in the walk-in cooler
That pickup line
should have got me no further
From that moment,
our friendship grew
It wasn't too long
until I fell in love with you

My love for you
has grown so strong
But if I kept you
would that be so wrong?
My love for you
is bitter sweet
You unable to give
what I yearn to keep

Flutterby Butterfly
I want to keep you near by
But if I did that
you would wither and die
My love for you
lives till this day
So flutterby Butterfly
flutter away...
Until the next time
...you flutterby my way

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
