Hey, Butterfly! Butterfly!


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?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
