Butterfly Dreams

The dreams of my heart
my mind doth pass

In my dream of butterflys
for they hug me
without sound

Nothing stays with me to long
In my dream of butterflys
they lift me from this ground

But I have had from
since as a child
In my dream of butterflys
they so still my mind

The deep solace of song
In my dream of butterflys
they flutter for there posied.

In my dream of butterflys
my daughter now is four
If that should ever leave me
In my dream of butterflys
such delight my eyes
forever roam

Let me find life and stay
In my dream of butterflys
soft weaved wings
they always have

With wings whose tunes
are played out and not
In my dream of butterflys
linen is does my neice now lay.

Like the rain of yesterday
rainbow weaved it is
thus so
In my dream of butterflys
heavens light doth shine
so true.

In my dream of butterflys
no cut nor sting
for all will sing
for the beauty with
out flowers no dream.

    The First shrike -

    That's the amazing thing about butterflies, their 'tunes that are played out and not forgotten are passed down to their children and their children's children, so they can fly thousands of miles back to the same branch. See my poem, Going Home!

    Great writing! Cheryl (Report) Reply

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
