Hey, Butterfly! Butterfly! Poem by Brian Farrugia


Hey! butterfly! butterfly!
Come by me
and tell me of your dreams.

Have you danced with fairies gay
and found your love and life?

Have you drunk the sweetest gold
and paused on the finest beds?

Hey, butterfly, butterfly
Rest on me
and sing your finest song

Have you heard the music
the music of all that is?

Have you seen the unseeable tones
and swam in the seas scent?

Have you danced with blossoms
and laid your babes to grow?

A fluttered dream of worms long dead
the hope of better things to come.

Hey, butterfly, butterfly
leave me not
But tell, what dreams dream of?
of worms? of God?
or Both?
