Life Is Like The Butterfly

Study the butterfly and you will understand my mind!
Viewing and inspiring;
In works! !
With all manners of sickness around us today.

Lust, lost!
Sleeping with another man's wife;
But, life is like the butterfly.

Cheat, heat, eat!
Steadily! !
And like the occupants in your neighbourhood.

To bury my sorrows in pain;
But, this approaching train is not the last train.

Rain, Terrain!
But, stainless with the muse of love.

Salt, saltiness!
You are the light of the world;
Very nice and neat with the muse of love.

Study the butterfly! !
And, you will understand my muse;
Sweet and soft with the muse of care.

To find the canal and,
To solve the puzzle;
Tender and peacefully with the muse of unity.

Study the butterfly to know my ways;
With the sweet muse of love.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
