There Must Be A Butterfly Heaven

There must be a butterfly heaven for butterflies are free of sin
And the keeper of the gates of heaven will allow them for to enter in
For to flit through the gardens of heaven and to dance in the sun and the wind
There must be a butterfly heaven if there is one for the human kind.

For butterflies of all shapes and colours for to flit around the flowering bushes and trees
In sunlit gardens where wild birds are singing and dance in the heavenly breeze
If there's a hereafter for a human there's a hereafter for a butterfly
For to live and enjoy life forever up there in a World in the sky.

If there is no butterfly heaven there is not a heaven at all
The butterflies of parks and gardens who are destined to die in the Fall
If they do not have a heaven to go to what chances for you or for i
Of living again in a hereafter have we been brought up on a lie?

There must be a butterfly heaven though religious zealots say no
That butterflies are soul-less life forms but one must ask would they know?
For to them we are not that different for us too there is a last day
And butterflies of sin are quite innocent and for them there is no need to pray.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
