Butterfly, Butterfly - Poem by Angela Wybrow
Butterfly, butterfly, wild and free,
Fluttering on the summer breeze.
Over the land, you silently sail:
Over hill and over dale.
You flit, you float, you dart, you dive;
You are so full of life.
Curious kittens, you love to tease,
But you escape with sprightly ease.
Upon your beauty, people gaze,
As you flutter by on your way.
You fly on gauzy, bejewelled wings;
Your elegant robes are fit for a king.
Of your own beauty, you’re unaware:
Maybe you wonder why we stare.
But with your colours so bold and bright,
You are such an exquisite sight.
Through the air, you wind about:
Up and down, and in and out.
Many heads turn, as you fly past;
You are so fragile – just like glass.
We only glimpse you for a short while,
But, on our faces, you paint a smile.
To our hearts, you bring such cheer;
You are a sign that summer is here.
